Powell's Book - Basil Hallward Gallery

I have been working so hard on my upcoming solo show at Powells Books and the opening day is tomorrow! Yay! I have over 45 paintings in the Basil Hallward Gallery. Powells Book is the biggest used book store and it is a Portland staple. My mother would take me here and we spend hours exploring, finding books and hanging out in the coffee shop.

The show runs the whole month of March. I will also be there tomorrow at 6:30!

Floral Friday

I have been volunteering at my daughter's school and collaborating with the kids for an upcoming art project. It has been pretty great, and I am surprised at the amount of joy little people can have for just to make a mark on a surface.  Taking note of that with florals.
