Wine Country..



I have been getting ready for first and last Thursday coming up this week and the following week. This is a little painting is in Dundee, OR in the heart of Oregon's wine country.

This last week one of my friends from my art group is hosting concerts every month this summer at her home. The show series is called Home Spun. They are hosting bands with a $3 dollar cover. All the beer, wine, and cupcakes are only a dollar and made by local Portlanders. It was amazing how they put it all together and there are still 2 more shows this summer.

So my art group has been going back in forth with working on collaborative projects. We have decided to do art journals and we are going to start trading them with in group. So I will start posting some pics of the future journal entries. I started decorating mine with collage but I don't know if it's done quite yet.

The Amazing Race



So this weekend one my friends, Mark turned 30 and he decided to throw an Amazing Race Party. It was quite an adventure and all of the teams were running all over town. One person from each team was supposed to complete each challenge. If you didn't complete the challenge, then there was a 15 minute penalty per person. The most unusual challenge was sun bathing nude on Sauvie's Island for 10 minutes- and thank fully I was on a team with an exhibitionist... and no I was not the sun bather. : ) Well we came in 3rd but it was close! Here is me and the ladies toasting after the race.

I have been painting away in my studio and getting ready for all the summer events and future fall/winter events. This little painting is called "Breakfast" because who can resist a yummy warm delicious coffee in the morning with a little bit of fruit. Well I can't resist a warm, delicious, mouth watering, coffee in the morning.. or afternoon.. or evening..
I also have decided to write a letter a day out to different people from my Saturday Art Group, because who doesn't like mail? I think I would send out more mail but I don't have any one's addresses.
