Veritable Quandary 3 paintout September 13, 2016

Veritable Quandary is closing the end of September, 2016. This is the last in a series of painting of VQ. John Lehman, Kara Wilde, and Paul Lockhart were also painting VQ on this Tuesday afternoon. Note the sunlight in the video destroys the background for a while. The bright sun makes the shade so dark that you cannot see beyond the painting. Then the clouds return and you can see much better. The clouds have the same affect on my eyes. I love the clouds.

Here is a video of my painting the customers queued up to enter VQ as the open at 11:30am. John Lehman was also out here painting. The weather tried to rain, but never quiet got there.

Kids at Wednesday Market August 24, 2016

Kids come to Wednesday market every week. Here are a few 3-4 year old kids visiting the Wednesday Farmer's Market in Shemanski Square Portland Oregon. They always stop and ask what I am painting, and they never hold still. They are terrible models.
