Opening Our Studios is invigorating!

Tuesday, October 18th, 2016

Every year during the second and third weekends of October over a hundred of Portland’s artists throw open their studio doors and invite the public into the spaces where art is made. Portland Open Studios is a juried event that Dennis and I both have been lucky enough to get into the last two years; two years […]

Offering others A DAY TO PAINT

Monday, September 19th, 2016

I can’t count the number of times people have asked me if I teach painting classes. I have always said no. This is because I was not taught to be a painter ( I majored in Graphic Design in college) and do what I do intuitively. Passing on that kind of knowledge is difficult and […]

Painting Intensive – Final Day 5

Sunday, August 25th, 2013

I only had a couple hours the last day due to a planned trip to Seattle to meet up with my daughter for dinner and have a “play day” with Dennis to celebrate his 63rd.  We just returned, having soaked ourselves in a 50 year retrospective of  Patti Warashina’s work at the BellevueArts Museum (as […]

Painting Intensive- Day 2

Wednesday, August 21st, 2013

Today I pushed. I’m pooped and pumped.  Decided to work bigger and so prepped some canvas last night for today’s efforts.  30 x 40 inches?  Didn’t measure. Doesn’t matter – you get the idea. At the venue this morning I did a quick acrylic wash of red/ pink over the white ground and then finished […]

Studying Heads at Gabriel’s Studio

Saturday, March 10th, 2012

Another 8 weeks with Gabrielle before I bow out of class for the spring/summer when too many Fridays are already scheduled with events. Last week Gabe did a demo painting a model for the whole three hours while we sketched. I’m glad for this instruction at this time, when I am finishing Noah’s Guitar and […]
