We have had some great storms roll through the Northwest this week and watching them unfold on the city has been inspiring. My studio looks right across the Willametter River that splits Portland in two, giving me a sweet view of Downtown and the West Hills. As these big storms roll over the hill and unleash their fury, I have a front row view to these massive cloudbanks. They remind me of how little we are in this world and that we should do what makes us happy, daily.
However, this morning was clear and this was the scene that greeted me. Pretty stunning. Now that should give you your fill of Oregon today. This is the first installment of my new series titled "This Day in Oregon." Plenty more to come considering this is part one of my 3500 part series of "This Day in Oregon." Won't you join me for the other installments.
Well, it has been almost two weeks since I last posted anything new. After my Open Studio I have had a little down time, which has been easy to get into, especially with the holidays, and everyone seems to be able to find a little more free time than they normally would. Holiday parties, family gatherings, all that stuff has been fun. But now its back to work, I 've got plenty to get done before Christmas so time to crack the whip. My time has been very good for creativity and with every transition my work always takes new twists, so this gestation period has really let my ideas marinate.
These two little paintings I will post as filler before I delve into what's on the easel. But what's on the easel will have to wait since I have a few things in the works and want them completely finished before I put them on here.
