Plein air painting in Peninsula Park Portland Oregon today, September 21, 2017, with Paul Lockhart, John Lehman, and Kara Wilde. This is a video of a do-over...a market scene becomes the gazebo through the magic of Utrecht acrylic paint.

Painting chickens at Paul Lockhart's place September 12, 2017

Plein air painting three lovely ladies at Paul Lockhart's place today in Portland Oregon. The ladies are Mable, Florence, and Lu. The painters are Paul Lockhart, John Lehman, Roberta Hodara, Mary Hill and myself. The chickens made terrible models...they kept moving and demanding more food to keep their attention.  Maybe we will paint them nesting next time.

Painting Roses at the Centennial Celebration of the International Rose Test Garden in Portland Oregon

Saturday, August 26th, Portland Parks celebrated the Centennial of the International Rose Test Garden in Portland Oregon. Oregon Society of Artists participated in the celebration by plein air painting roses and providing an opportunity for kids and adults to paint roses. 5000+ people attended the event and hundreds stopped by the OSA table to paint roses. There are a lot of rose painters out there. Peggie Moje, Sandra Pearce, Michael Musto, Randall Vemeer, Kara Wilde, and Myself painted roses. While Nancy Klos, Sharon Hall, and Yolanda Valdez-Rementeria enabled the hundreds of kids to paint rose themselves. I have never seen such dedication on the part of the kids and adults. We also had two eagle scouts helping us all day, Tony Kollman and Neil. Tim and Barbara Mahoney provided transportation and support all day also. Thanks everyone for a great event.
