Mitchell Boy Train Yogananda Destiny. All in the color orange…. Cherished Blogfest Starts today! July 29, 30, 31! Tell us about a cherished object: post a painting / drawing / photo, and in 500 words or less, tell us why … Continue reading
Thurman Street is a nice “hike” up into the West Hills. Mitchell and I have been searching for good doors, and I have to say, Great houses but such mediocre doors as to be boring! However, many wealthy people who … Continue reading
Hot Lips Pizza parked outside our favorite sushi bar… Stopping in for a bite? In the final days of the first World Watercolor Month! Only a few days until Cherished Blogfest July 29, 30, 31! Tell us about a cherished … Continue reading
Memory of a lovely day with Mitchell. Started with the Pen Show, then on to the more normal Saturday activity for us: Going to the Portland Saturday Market for peaches and squash and other yummy things. We also happened upon … Continue reading
Mitchell had a saw buck and a piece of wood went flying yesterday. We are very lucky and thanked KaliMa that it missed his artery in his arm by mere mms! Hit him in the middle of his two eyes … Continue reading
Part two of the response to a friend’s request to post for National Train Day! Part one here! (Go visit him here if you love trains and that will lead you to others who are posting, and the logo also … Continue reading
There is this amazing rusty metal door going into the art gallery on Raleigh. It is a wild thing, all twisted and colorful and rough and organic. I did my best; but gads, what a door. It pops out of … Continue reading
This is in response to a friend’s request to post for National Train Day! (Go visit him here if you love trains and that will lead you to others who are posting, and the logo also was stolen from him….) … Continue reading
We see these sweet homes on the way to our vets, and on walks. They are no where near special enough to be saved when the bulldozers come, which they will because way laid back Portlandiars won’t fight to save … Continue reading
Trinity Episcopal Church, at the corner of 19th and Everett, across from where the NW Outdoor Market is often held. I rarely see it like the image right (Wiki) — trees obscure the lovely old building except when it … Continue reading
Near Lindy Ltd., Vaughn curves into 18th and there is a lovely set of older buildings. I’ve seen chickens in the street in this odd quiet part of the city. Quick studies, not that happy with outcome — trees are … Continue reading
Had little time to sketchcrawl last weekend, but found a great corner near us in NW. Around the corner from the main Pro Photo shop on 19th is the new-old building, where they’ve taken a dull green-grey corner at 18th … Continue reading
I have more space in my studio, and a new window. It is pouring. My urban sketch today was out my new window looking east on NW Nicolai! All the spring greens against the evergreens, a riot of green and … Continue reading
Above, a quick sketch (with Diamine Ancient Copper ink in a Lamy Al-star) of the Native American Student Center at the south end of the PSU campus, off the park. Watercolor wash moved the inks: three colors were used: Yavapei, … Continue reading
Our studio sits in the NW Industrial Sanctuary. When most think of a sanctuary they think of preserving bird and wildlife habitats, but there are other kinds of sanctuaries. Once this was a gorgeous waterway and lake , used for … Continue reading
We are so happy to have New Seasons blocks from our studio! No more driving all around for groceries! YAY! We went opening day before we opened the studio. Mostly they were setting up and greeting their new customers, and … Continue reading
I love Saint Patrick’s Church in NW Portland. I drive by it all the time as it sits across from our bank. The Beaux-Arts church looks like it belongs in Italy, set into cobbled streets surrounded by a park and … Continue reading
