    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:

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.
