Cool paintings at the Sunday Farmers Market

I continue to meet wonderful people at the market. I am selling my travel watercolors (the washed out white spots on the left) and recent paintings (flowers & landscapes). People are also giving me ideas for new paintings (I have a notepad where everyone can write down their suggestions). Some ideas are London, Greece, and Italy.

What to expect:

  • New watercolor versions of places I have previously visited from the suggestion list.

  • New watercolors of Portland-area landmarks.

  • A few new flowers; in oil.

  • Workshops – I have received requests for classes/workshops. I will plan those as well. Possibilities are watercolor and drawing.I can do one or both. Let me know your thoughts.
