On Tuesday, Sarah Paynes and Amanda Cowan from The Gazette Times in Corvallis Oregon came over to the studio to talk with me about my art and the Philomath Open Studios Tour of which I am a part. They kindly ignored the mess of my studio and encouraged me to talk about my work. Sarah wrote a very nice article and Amanda used only the best photographs of the many, many she took. Thank you Sarah and Amanda for making me look good!

This is a study for a larger piece that I am working on right now. Everyone who visited my studio today during Philomath Open Studios got to see the larger piece in the very first stages with the black gesso before the color goes on. Tomorrow I will start to put in the transparent color and it will go through some very ugly stages. I might have to put a sheet over it at this point!
Even though I was trying to hide the study so that I could work from it for the large one, I couldn’t help showing it to people as I explained my process. It was sold, but I’ll ship it to her when I finish my large painting.
If you are in the area, today and next weekend (November 2 & 3rd, 2013) my studio will be open for the Philomath Open Studios Tour.
