Cherries and Orange Bowl - sold

A friend commissioned me to do a painting of cherries for her mother, for a Christmas present, so she drove to Portland to get cherries for me to paint for the painting because we didn't have any here! I made several "cherries" paintings since I have the cherries anyway... this is one of them. They are fun to paint, I loved painting this one with the bright orange bowl right next to the cherries, I think the colors worked out well.

Red and Blue Bowls

I did this painting for an oil painting class, I taught on Tuesday. In the class we were talking about direction of light and shadows, and how to make a subject look like it is "in the light". It is a 3 hour long class once a week at the Columbia Center for the Arts.

Shiny Ladle

Something shiny to paint. Did I mention that I met the painter, Henry Stinson at our local art gallery, he has some very fun and exciting paintings on display there. Google him, he has quite a resume. He studied with Ron Lukas, who was a student of Sergei Bongart. I wish I had studied with Sergei Bongart. Anyway, I was inspired to paint something colorful and shiny. More to come.

Live Model, Portrait Sessions

model with green hat


the knitter

We are lucky to have "portrait sessions" at our local art center, Columbia Center for the Arts. These are a couple of my paintings from the past couple of weeks. We have a live model available every Friday from 9am - 12 noon. It's great practice to paint from a live model. The model on the top, wanted us to try painting her green hat, the painting on the bottom, looks like her eyes are closed, she is actually knitting while posing for us.

Quick Draw in Hood River - Sketch

The Quick Draw (it's really about painting, don't ask me why they call it Quick Draw) is tomorrow, and the location is downtown Hood River. I would love to paint some people at the coffee shop. So I was sketching them today at the coffee shop to see how it might go, and this is what I came up with in my sketchbook.

It is sponsored by Columbia Center for the Arts in Hood River and Bellas Art Supplies.

Colorful Chairs - sold

This painting is in the Plein Air 2010 show at the Columbia Center for the Arts. It sold the first night at the opening of the show, with lots of interest in more commissioned paintings of the "famous chairs" at Rasmussen Farm, in Hood River OR. Rasmussen Farm is up for sale, so "the chairs" may be no more! Lots of artists and photographers stop and make their interpretation of the chairs. I will be doing more chair paintings, in different sizes.

Been a while since I posted, but I have been busy! Here is the finished painting that I was working on when Oregon Public Broadcasting, Art Beats film crew, Katrina Sarson; Producer, audio tech Randy Layton, and videographer Greg Bond, came out to my studio to do some filming for the program. That was a fun thing to do. They are so professional... you can tell they have lots of years of experience working with many different kinds of artists.

Blaney's Fava Beans

My painter friend, Blaney has a spot at the farmer's market, where she sells locally grown vegetables. I had never SEEN a fava bean, much less eaten one! Blaney told me they were great, (and they looked interesting to paint) so I got some. They are good to eat, and good to paint. The background color is sort of blue-gray laverdery, I thought it looked good with the fresh spring green of the beans. I don't know if the photo accurately captures this color.
