in and around Valldemossa, Mallorca - 33 - in progress




I made it in to Koldshoulder Working Gallery (Facebook page <here>) today and started up a new painting.  I hope to get back again soon so I can keep going with it.

I did another, smaller and quite different version of this view in January 2012.  We'll see how different this newer one is when it's finished...

E. and her 5 very well-behaved German Shepherds

11" x 14", acrylic on cotton hard press watercolor paper
I painted this for a friend's daughter, who told me she wanted five German Shepherds.  After meeting our crazy pup, Nigel, she clarified that she would train them all to behave.

First Thursday Grand Opening at Koldshoulder Working Gallery

Last night Sean Kalley and Patrick Zahn hosted the Grand Opening at Sean's Koldshoulder Working Gallery here in Portland.

I posted pictures on Facebook the event, including art of Sean Kalley, Patrick Zahn, Ron Berg, Davey Cadaver, Carol Duvernois, Kurt McGrew, and Wesley Younie.

During the Grand Opening I started a painting of the South Park Blocks here in Portland.  Here are some in-progress shots of it (also posted on Facebook):





I did a version of this same view in June 2010.  It'll be an interesting comparison.  My technique has definitely evolved over the last three years.
