Baby Love 1 - Watercolor Batik on Rice Paper - 12X16 / Sold

Baby Love 2 - Watercolor Batik on Rice Paper - 12X16 / Sold



Portland's emphasis on all things artsy extends into the suburbs, especially to Lake Oswego.   And that's a good thing for painters because many L.O. business owners grace their walls with the work of local artists.

Rhonda Webber, IM+X Pilates Studio owner/trainer, has invited me to exhibit in her studio through Christmas.  If you're local, I hope you get to a chance to stop by this beautifully serene venue located in downtown Lake Oswego at 436 First Street.

I am enjoying a week long visit with out of state company right now, but am looking forward to getting back to the blog next week.
