The wonderful folks at PawTeam raised over $31,000 for the pets and people of those experiencing homelessness or extreme poverty during their Pawpalooza auction event. I contributed a pet portrait as an auction item raising $350. Historically I've shrugged off requests for pet portrait commissions, but I'm excited to to try my hand at a canine portrait to help out some four legged friends.
Jeremy Okai Davis and I taught a still life painting workshop at Sou'Wester this winter. We had wonderful folks from Astoria, Ilwaco, and patrons of the lodge participating in the day long workshop. It was very impressive to see everyone's paintings progress throughout the day!
Portland based painters Jeremy Okai Davis and Kristen Flemington will lead an informative and experiential painting workshop that is inclusive to painting-curious folks from advanced painters to artistic newbies. We will review the basics of color theory and painting techniques, practice a few brief painting exercises, then complete a small still life painting that participants can take home with them. This workshop is a great introduction to painting or an excellent opportunity to flex well formed artistic skills. We will be painting with acrylic paint. Supplies will be provided, but if participants would like to bring their own supplies, they are more than welcome to.
