My Favorite Rose - sold

I am busy practicing my roses for the Invitational Plein Air Event at the Portland Art Museum, Aug 4 & 5. I am really happy with this one.
I went to Portland last week, to check out the area around the Park Blocks and Museum, and do some painting on location, before the event.

I was invited, along with 49 other fabulous regional painters to paint at the Museum for 2 days (Aug 4&5) and then sell the work at the Museum on Aug 5. There are many things to paint in the Park Blocks at the Museum, roses, trees, people...

A Rose From My Garden - sold


I was very inspired to paint roses, following my visit last week to the Portland Art Museum (PAM). Franz Bischoff is one of my favorite painters of the California Impressionists, he was called "King of the Rose Painters". One of his rose paintings is in the show, at the PAM - California Impressionists, 60 Paintings from the Irvine Museum. On Aug 4 & 5, PAM is having an Invitational Plein Air Event on the grounds on of the Museum, 50 regional painters will be painting on Aug 4 &5. I'm sure this is a first time event for PAM, but I hope there will be more events like this one. And there is a large garden at the museum which I am sure lots of artists will be painting, with roses of all colors in full bloom! Portland isn't called "City of Roses" for nothing. It will be fun! So come check it out if you have time.
And yesterday, Carol Marine painted a stunningly beautiful rose for her daily painting.

1119 SW Park Avenue - Mark Building - sold



This is a door to part of the Portland Art Museum. I was painting outside in the park across from the PAM today. The PAM is hosting the first invitational plein air event to celebrate their California Impressionism Exhibit from the Irvine Museum in California. The dates for this event are; August 4 & 5. I am very excited to be one of 50 artists invited to participate in this first ever event!
I have always liked painting architecture, this building has some history! It was originally built in 1925, as a Masonic Temple. It was a rock concert venue in the 60's and is now part of the Portland Art Museum. (I read that THE DOORS played there!) The building is now known as the Mark Building.

Cherries on Curry - sold



I love the intensity of the reds on the curry color. In this painting I am working on "lost and found edges", the colors of shadows, and getting a painterly feeling overall in the final result.
