Wow - July - Harmony - Sun - Fun - plein Air- Summer is in full swing.
i'm staying cool and out of the heat working on new ideas and my continuing journey into colour and light foliage.
working on all sorts of Oregon Grape in all of the seasons. The plants that I have been using as a reference are in front of the parking area of the Music Box - the headquarters for the Harmony Arts festival! They are a constant inspiration and this week the berries were turning a beautiful ultramarine blue from a lovely light turquoise.
have fun out there! Don't forget - there is a plein air challenge at Harmony on Aug 6th. It is separate this year to paint on the mountain. 12 artists were chosen and will be painting the first weekend for a chance to win prizes.
lots of great events from 'July 29th to Aug 7th. The opening for the group Art show is July 29th at 6-7pm. There are more of my art in the Art Shop at the Silk Purse right near the tent. I will have art cards available from the original on show. I'll be volunteering in the Silk Purse a few times so why not drop by!
