Lunch After the Painting Demo

      Went to a really great figure demonstration at OSA today with Craig Srebnik.  He paints in oil but his approach is so universal to any opaque media.  Afterwards headed over to the Leaky Roof on SW 17th and Jefferson for Lunch and libations to fulfill yet another scavenger hunt item...... A Beer! A Mirror Pond, to be more specific.  Celeste and I sketched away taking full advantage of our model, Loretta!  What a trooper she is. :) !!  It's going to be a warm sunny weekend so I ought to knock a few more off the  scavenger list; stay tuned.

Farmers Market Wednesday in Park Blocks

     Wednesdays Farmers Market is on in the South Park Blocks close to the Portland Art Museum.  I saw the sign yesterday while I went to see Rothko. Decided to come back this morning to do my first Scavenger Sketch with the Portland Urban Sketchers. The 'List' has 30 items, some are unique to this weird  little commune alone; some are universal.  If you want to join in, send me a link to your farmers market sketch in the comments and I'll add it below! One down and a bunch to go!

Crystal Springs on Monday

Finally, a really sunny day and I wasn't going to let anything distract me from getting out and painting.  I didn't think the park was going to be quite so crowded; everyone had the same idea. Not a cloud or a drop of rain in sight but there were several bus loads of visitors dropped off.  So, I didn't get as much done in the way of painting and sketching, the sun felt great and I took away some nice scenic shots.  See them below in the little slide show!!
