Carol Carter is going to teach a watercolor workshop in Portland next March! And ..... I wanted to paint this guy, especially after David L. and Mulind M. had their little paint off. I had a photos from friends who had traveled to Nepal, Viet Nam, and Cambodia.

Bike Friday. They really looked slick and folded down to the size of a baby carrier in about 10 seconds. I think they picked great colors but you'll have to add lights and reflectors.
There is a glare on the sign but this is a couple blocks North of the Museum. The Farmers Market is in this block on Wednesdays till 2pm.

Happy little family of Panda bears; poppa - mama - baby. This will be the last of the bears for a while. I may finish out the rest of the collection on Behind the Scenes but I think I have covered the individuals with the most unique characteristics. These were fun to explore and recreate on paper.

Quickie little sketch this morning (cute bear of Carolyn's) and then a planned outing to Kruger Farms on Suavie Island. Meeting any number of artists to paint around the farm and later enjoy a bar-b-q and art sale. Live music too! Hope we get some sun this afternoon. If you are in our neck of the woods, come on out - dive out highway 30, Take the new bridge to the island and head past the little market. Hope to see you there!

Hot day. Just about to cool off with a coating of dust. It wouldn't work for me or my friends but these guys love it. I was thinking some nice cool purples and blues could make him think twice about a wallow in the dirt. My great nephew thinks I should have just used brown but I didn't have any earth tones in my palette. Maybe next time, crimson and orange.

We stopped at Frog Lake on Mt Hood so the kids could look for tadpoles and have a picnic. We watched lots of those little pontoon boats with a single fisherman. The water was high and pretty cold so we saw quite a few trout being caught. The guys having the best luck were using flies. Some guy showed us the 20 inch trout already on ice. I had time to do some sketching and get some pictures after lunch. From past experience I know the lake perimeters will be loaded with frogs in August.
