Today I was at Tumalo Gallery (www.tumaloartco.com) from 10 AM to 8 PM...the long shift is easier for me as I live waaaaaay outside of Bend. However, even on a fairly busy day (business is picking up), these are a lot of hours. So I generally bring my little Guerrilla Box and paint. Today i did two studies, each 5x7 inches. One if from a photo of an empty boat, early in the morning with the mist on the lake with South Sister in the background; the other of a river in Eastern, Oregon. Neither are finished...and may never be..or may be sanded over. But I find that just doing these little paintings keeps my mind agile. And it is a LONG day!
