    Story: It’s wintertime along the channel. The nature-made channel runs parallel to the Columbia River from Portland to St. Helens, Oregon. The vantage point is just east of Scappoose, along Dike Road; looking south from Lat. 45.7, Long. -122.8.

    Story: Finding a vantage point to paint this Scappoose icon isn’t easy. It is almost completely surrounded by large, obnoxious billboards. Even this view, looking south, was not unobstructed (I chose not include them). It’s sad that the symbol of Scappoose, and world peace, is so obstructed – and in need of some caretaking.

Teaching at the local elementary school

What fun!

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.

One of my groups with their pastel self portraits:

Stop by and see me at the market

Market Date

It’s not Summer yet, we have barely had a Spring, but Farmers Market season has begun. I am at the Scappoose and hillsboro-Orenco Station markets. If you are in the area, please stop by my booth and say hello. The days that I will be at each market are posted on my website.

November 12th – mark your calendar

Sunday, October 30th was the final day of the Hillsboro Farmers Market – It was a wet one, as you can see by the photo of my booth. Rain is expected this time of year in Oregon and it did not deter the market-goers. It was the day before Halloween so I put out Foxy in a pumpkin. As usual, she was a hit with the kids.

So what’s next?

I plan on sending greeting cards of my travel watercolors to everyone who supported my art-making this past year, but I need your help. I will send an email on November 12th. If you do not receive one from me, then I do not have your email. So, I would like you to JOIN my email list. Thank you!

I’m back in the studio. That means more abstract flower paintings. I might even branch out beyond poppies and daisies. I am also restarting an old practice; figure painting. I love painting people, I’ve been away from it for too long.

Fine Art at the local Farmers Market – and Foxy Iced Tea

It was another warm day at the Farmers Market in my little town of Scappoose, OR. The good part about this market is that it is small in a small town. I meet my neighbors. It’s a fun hard day of work. I seem to be the last person to leave every day – I have lots of bits and pieces to pack up. Thankfully, Foxy had a cold glass of iced tea ready when I got home. With lemon even!
