Everyone has their moments!

"Monsters In The Thrift Store" results

ASIFA Portland and PNCA made possible an event where people came together for an afternoon of painting on thrift-store paintings! Here are my "before" and "after" pics!

Portland Art Museum sketch crawl

Last night I went to the Portland Art Museum with the official Drink & Draw Portland group.  Every fourth Friday night, the museum is free to get into from 5-8pm.  So we brought our sketchbooks, drew from about 6:30-8, and wandered over to a bar and shared sketchbooks and drinkies.  This was a unique and wonderful drawing experience!

Painting Day 9/21/13

Went out with the Portland Urban Sketchers to do a little Plein Air painting of the sculpture at Pettygrove Park. I got this far and it started POURING.  I wish I could have gotten it finished!

Some of us decided we hadn't done enough painting yet, so we wandered over to the PSU farmer's market and I chose to paint the flowers at the flower shop.

 Then I got home and decided I needed to paint some more, so I painted this guy based on a sketch I did at the zoo, back in July

Short zoo day

A quick zoo visit means quick zoo drawings.
