Sneak Peek! + Summery Spring
April 29, 2013 § 8 Comments
Currently I am focusing on a series of still lives featuring my collection of keepsakes from the Thai-Burma border. Pictured below is (a detail of) a painting of a ceramic hare and an antique statuette of a red swallow. I found the ceramic hare at an artist’s shop in the northern city of Chiang Mai, Thailand. (Just a peek until the series is further along!)
This weekend I rode my bike up to Mt. Tabor to draw in my Moleskine sketchbook. Mt.Tabor is a park on an inactive volcano cinder cone within Portland city limits– basically it’s an enormous hill spanning 1.60 sq mi (4.14 km2) which is covered in majestic trees, winding pathways and vistas of the city.
We are experiencing another week of freak summer weather in April– very unusual for Portland, OR. At great odds with my painting time I have been spending as many sunlight hours as possible out of doors walking, biking, seeing friends, and breathing in the Spring air. Pictured below is my adorable artist / seamstress friend Loni. She made everything she’s wearing in that photo! Check out her Etsy shop- LoveToLoveYou.
