I am reminded of the sparse, yet spectacular red poopies that are sprinkled along the roads and farm paths in Germany.

I lead two days of portrait drawing classes this week at Otto Petersen Elementary School in Scappoose. My students were in the 4th, 5th, and 6th grades – a VERY energetic group.
The school brought in several artists from the local area. Students got to choose what they wanted to do; including drawing, watercolor, printing, abstraction, and more.

Sun in Western Oregon, oh my.
Yes. It was true. There was a bit of sun at the Saturday market and fun on sun today, Sunday. I got a bit of a burn to prove it.
Today’s farmers market was great. I had some new watercolors to show. I talked to lots of people, and a few went home with new original paintings! I like it hen people by original art – not just mine, by anyone.
