My beautiful Grandchildren were visiting from LA so I put painting on hold for awhile. I started back on this painting and as usual am wondering how to tackle the background, which always seems to be my nemesis. I tried following the pastel sketch I had been working from but the lower area with the pale lavender just wasn't working. Now I am trying more white, so I shall see where that takes me.

Howden. She has relocated her business from the West Linn area to my town of Oregon City. Needless to say it's wonderful to see my work hanging in a gallery. Annie has done an amazing job of renovating the space to 3000 sq feet which was a former garage/ pizza parlor and karate studio. Annie had a open house this past Friday ( the 16Th) which was standing room only and she provided us with delicious appetizers and beverages. Annie said she was thrilled with the response and several artists sold works that evening.
