"Bowl Full of Spring" (11 x 14" watercolor on aquabord) $225
I’m still busy working through glass and reflections. Long time readers with recognize the green mister. I love painting it. In ordinary household lighting, it is a dull unexceptional object. With the sun shinning through it, it is magical. The camellias are fresh out of the garden. Here in Salem camellias mean Spring has come.
This time my palette was: phtalo green, phthalo blue, quinacridone magental, new gamgee, and dixion purple. I used a hint of burnt sienna to dull and darken the greens and for the metal parts of the mister.
Painted on Ampersand’s aquaboard and mounted on a 2 inch black cradle frame the painting is ready to hang. Hung this was the effect is much like a gallery wrapped canvas. A frame may be added for a more traditional look.
Or purchase a fine art print.

I’ve spent my gallery shifts this month making postcard sized paintings for the OSU Mom’s Day Weekend Craft Fair. It’s a fun fair to do. Where else do you get to see a crowd of college boys with their moms?
As part of the Mom’s weekend celebration I’ll be at the gallery demonstrating polymer clay cane-making on Friday from 1:00 to 2:30 at Art in the Valley, 209 2nd Street, downtown Corvallis. The craft fair will be on campus in the Memorial Union Quad. The fair runs from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Saturday.
