The Art Experience


Our computer has been a little glitchy, but everything seems back to normal.

No time to paint yesterday, but morning and evening were spent doing art related activities.

Here goes:

While backing out the driveway, we got the usual wave from this bizarre tree that stands sentinel at the corner of our house.

  

Down the road, I noticed a new car in the neighborhood.
I wonder if the owner is related to Dr. McCoy.

 
We took our favorite leisurely route into Portland.  Bet you don't have a
"Chow Mein Lane" in your neighborhood.


Despite construction, we arrived on time at the Alla Prima Portland breakfast meeting  http://allaprimaportland.blogspot.com/ at O'Connor's Restaurant in Multnomah Village.   Multnomah is a little off-center, like most Portland neighborhoods.

After the meeting, we ran some errands and then came home.  While I put-zed, Tim went down to the studio and hung around.


A quick dinner and we were off again to the Oregon Society of Artists http://www.oregonsocietyofartists.com/.
 We listened to painting critiques, membership news, and then watched and listened as Andy Hayes, web producer,  conducted critiques of some of our members' websites.  

Andy also mentioned he has a new blogging series coming up on his site: http://andyhayes.com/latest-news.
 It sounds great.

After the meeting, we drove thru the Alphabet District neighborhood to check out the night lights and noticed a new display in a store window.  Reminds me of an old holiday movie for some reason.

When we got home, Tim poured a couple of glasses of wine and we sat on the deck and admired the starry sky.

Tonight, we're off to the opening reception of "Reigning Cats & Dogs" at the Lane Gallery
(http://www.laneartgallery.com/).  The works of fellow artists Celeste Bergin
http://joannekollman.com/ are featured in the show.


Oh, and I just got a lesson in doing "Links," and a reminder that I need to shift to a left justified margin.

Okay, whatever...
