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.

June paintings and an update
I’ve been painting quite a bit to keep up with market demand. I finished four 5×7″ watercolors today (group photo below). I started six more watercolors and three poppy paintings are almost finished.

I’ve returned to my Portland landmark series. This is the beginning of Powell’s Bookstore in Downtown Portland Oregon.
All day on the computer!
Well, we have to do computer work too. I am still bummed about the cancellation of the reception for my show at Art on Broadway. The Portland area just isn’t used to having and handling this much snowy and cold weather so many days in a row. I will let you know if/when the reception is rescheduled.
My latest Watercolor in my Portland Landmarks series – St Johns Bridge. It spans the Willamette River in North Portland.>

I’m still working on my series of watercolors of Portland landmarks. This one is the Portland sign at the Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall on Broadway.

I am taking a break – I was working on my Portland-area Landmarks watercolors most of the day today. The list of paintings in this series in below. They will all be 11×14 inches.
We’re checking my progress on the Burnside Bridge.
It’s one of the many bridges over the Willamette River that connect east and west Portland. East Portland is pictured. Downtown (west) Portland was behind me as I sketched.
