A First!

I am on a journey. Perhaps this is a journey of reconnecting to a significant part of me.
Some moments in a life seem to happen as they are, and some happen simultaneously laden with wonder. It behooves us all to be conscious enough to recognize all the moments of our life when they occur... this is one for me:

Recently, I have been commissioned to paint a very special portrait_ the portrait of a beloved animal companion.
In order to keep my client informed of its progress, I have planned to post the portrait's drawing-painting process to my blog. This may happen daily, and posting the progress may also happen more sporadically.

Today, I begin posting with my first, very rough warm-up sketch started last night, and finished this morning. It is of a random puppy from the cover of a magazine. With it, I am simply warming up on many fronts, in choosing this image of canine devotion.
I am inviting you to join this journey; to tune in and watch the progress of this portrait.

The journey begins...

Have a holly jolly Christmas! It's the best time of the year. Oh, by golly have a holly, jolly Christmas, this year!

Go to this link on the Portland Art Center website, and scroll down 'til you find my name. The "Almost Everyone" category means that we all help, and/or volunteer throughout the year in some small or large way to support our community art center!

Spend some time exploring the website this time of the year, to get inspired by the Willamette Week Give! Guide. Then, make end-of-the-year tax deductible donation(s) to the organizations and cultural causes that mean good things for you.
