I'm participating in several events in the Sellwood neighborhood of Portland this month.
On Saturday, September 18, I will be painting plein air along with Marcia VanderSchaaf at the Love Art! Gallery in Sellwood near antique shops and Oaks Park between 11:00 and 1:00 pm. If you're an artist, come and join us! If you love art, come and join us! There will be music, too, and the gallery is filled with wonderful things, inside and out. Love Art! is located at 8036 SE 13th Ave., Portland, OR 97202, see www.facebook.com/LoveArtGallery.
Also this month, I'm painting at several locations along the Johnson Creek watershed to raise awareness of this natural resource flowing through Portland. The Johnson Creek Watershed Council is hosting a one day exhibit of plein air paintings at Umpqua Bank in Sellwood on Friday, October 1st 6-9 pm. Umpqua Bank is located at 7831 SE 13th Ave., Portland 97202. I have recently visited Tideman Johnson Park, painting included, and hope to get to other locations in Gresham, Leach Botanical Garden, Reed Canyon and Crystal Springs. It's great to discover natural beauty to close to home and to express its inspiration.
