When Will I Ever Learn...(see note about juried show you can enter!)

Cold Day @ Tumalo Resevoir
Cold Day @ Tumalo Resevoir
I started out today to meet up with friends painting about an hour from my house. It was a sunny day and seemed like it would be mild. So I rejected carrying my fleece, or a warm hat. As I approached the turn off to the mountain site, I saw a particularly dark cloud, the wind picked up, and when I arrived  I found it so cold that I had to drape an old army blanket  around my shoulders and head! (A friend took pity and lent me her extra jacket...she planned ahead).
I am painting to enter:
Celebration Oregon, in honor of Oregon’s sesquicentennial.
You may download the prospectus on
Entry deadline – July 16
Show October 1-31 at the High Desert Gallery in the new Oxford Hotel in Bend.

Not sure this little pochade is one I will enter.  But I am becoming more fond of gray days...ones without the brilliant and predictable sunshine so often seen in plein air work.

Hi Janice,
Hope you had a great time in Colorado at your workshop. Gordon and I got home yesterday. It was sad to see so many galleries closed in Santa Fe and Taos.

I love the painting you did at Tumalo Reservoir! Colors are great. Thanks for putting in a plug for our plein air show, too. Hope to see you at Ron's place.
