Hello!

My name is Erika. I'm in love with making art, collecting old things & chasing after my two kiddos. This blog is a peek into my happy accidents & plots of total world domination.

Paint and Beer

Is it Friday already?  What are you up to this weekend? I do have a few business meetings this weekend but I think the hubs might be taking me to a movie and maybe some beer tasting.  Not sure which movie.  The international beer fest is in town for the weekend- and if your in Portland it's really the best one. It's pretty amazing- because the crowds aren't too crazy and the beer is delicious.  Oregon is the number 1 micro brew per capita in the world- and we do have a special place in the beer world.  Oregon has to be known for something other than Nike right?
Here is a little peak of what I have been working on- portraits! so tough!. So I am going to keep working at it- and hopefully I wont get mad at myself and keep erasing it.
I think my little puggers thinks he is part human- he was trying to give me a kiss.  Have a super weekend!

I didn't know Nike is from Oregon. I don'r have any plans for this weekend, it's too hot to think. I'll be in my garden, in my pool. I had to put icecubes in the water yesterday. So hot.

Seriously cute pup! Thanks for stopping by today - always great to meet new people! I really admire how you took the plunge to be an artist - painting was alway one of my great loves. And thanks for the comments". Sadly, the trip was over last week, I'm just late getting pics up!

Have fun at the brew festival! One of the best beers I ever had was at that place that serves the beer boots. Gosh I wish I could remember the name.

Kelsey said...

Oregon reigns supreme in the micro brew world but I love the northwest in general for all our beer options :) it's so fun! My big goal today is to find a new local wine I'll like. Hopefully I fare well and hope you had a great weekend!
