    Story: Scappoose would be mostly wetlands if it was not for the dike along Multnoma Channel. Durning the rainy season (Oct-July) many fields turn into ponds; a boon to migrating waterbirds.

Teaching at the local elementary school

What fun!

I lead two days of portrait drawing classes this week at Otto Petersen Elementary School in Scappoose. My students were in the 4th, 5th, and 6th grades – a VERY energetic group.

The school brought in several artists from the local area. Students got to choose what they wanted to do; including drawing, watercolor, printing, abstraction, and more.

One of my groups with their pastel self portraits:

Sun in Western Oregon, oh my

Sun in Western Oregon, oh my.

Yes. It was true. There was a bit of sun at the Saturday market and fun on sun today, Sunday. I got a bit of a burn to prove it.

Today’s farmers market was great. I had some new watercolors to show. I talked to lots of people, and a few went home with new original paintings! I like it hen people by original art – not just mine, by anyone.
