I decided to revisit the same composition that I had done a few weeks ago.
This was a graphite sketch on Wallis paper that I
then went back and liquified with water. I love this process before I get out
the liquid acrylics, then the pastels. It gives me a good opportunity to
get to know my composition and to loosen up!

Before we got started we had a picnic lunch.....
Deanna's house. She has an amazing view out her backyard!
She worked on capturing it in pastel....
while painting at her house under the cherry trees.
The cherries are all done now, but the scene is still there!

A joy to see.....The First Ever Oregon Plein Air Paint Out hosted by the Portland Art Museum
It was great to see Brenda Boylan working in oils on location!
And Thomas Jefferson Kitts capturing the roses with his beautiful brush strokes!
There were so many talented plein air painters....
It was a very special opportunity to see so many artists at work
on the South Park Blocks in front of the Art Museum.
Then inside the Museum a must see......
One of the many favorites........
