Having fun at Oktoberfest

Oktoberfest!!!

I took a holiday, not to Munich, but to the little town of Mount Angel, Oregon. It’s their 51st year of celebrating Oktoberfest. They are really into it: 3 beer halls with entertainment and lots of good food that benefits local schools, churches, etc. I didn’t eat all day so what does every artist do? I ate dessert first! Then, of course, was beer. Back to making art tomorrow.

On the way to Mount Angel…

The first order of business…. then on to see how much Oompah music I can listen to. Note to self: Don’t try to drink the fox’s beer. She will bite.

Market Fun, Flowers, and Oktoberfest!

I had a great time at the markets, once again. I took Foxy to the Sunday market in Hillsboro. She was a hit and met children who also had little foxes. I sold one of my favorite watercolors – it’s a scene of Decision Point Lighthouse in Alaska. My flower paintings also continue to go to nice homes. I must paint more of them!

Oktoberfest – It’s that time of year again. I’m not in Germany this year so I’m going to the one in Mt. Angel Oregon (www.oktoberfest.org). I’ll send a photo!

My harshest critic

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.
