My daughter arrived with her three youngest and Sarah, who's nearly 11, wanted to try her hand at painting with oil. she took to it like a duck to water and finished a very sweet little painting that's mostly sky. One concept she picked all up by herself is that she can look at what's in front of her and paint that rather than what's in her head.
I'll be painting again tomorrow in downtown Hillsboro, first at the 'Fast Draw" at the Walters Art Center, and then I'll set up downtown and tackle an urban scene. Painting commences at 9 am, and Fast Draw is at 10. We turn in our work for jurying at 2:30 at the Walters Center. The Farmers Market is Saturday so the town will be hopping with activity, what with all the artists and farmers around. Maybe I'll see some of you there.
