Welcome to my art blog! I have had the most remarkable summer spending time with some of the most wonderful artists in the Columbia River Gorge. Tuesday mornings were spent painting en plein aire at various locations around Hood River, OR with a group of talented artists. Thursday mornings found me at Bella's in Hood River, painting with local artist Cathleen Rehfeld. I also had the opportunity to take classes from Eric Jacobsen, a local artist transplanted from New England, who studied fine arts at the Lyme Academy of Fine Arts in Connecticut. I'm not ready for summer to end so I will travel to Hawaii, island of Kauai, to paint tropical flowers and the beach. I also look forward to the lovely fall colors of Oregon!
