I'll be adding paintings to this blog at irregular times. My old blog had as part of the title "painting a day" and I never lived up to that.

The title on this one has two meanings: it's a shot I took in the mirror and forgot to reverse in Photoshop, and it portrays the mirror image of my personality. (OK, I suppose a few might quibble with that.) This is the 2nd in a series I have in mind- it's been difficult to get volunteers to show exaggerated expressions AND catch them in good light. I'll be pretty busy during the next week or so- so probably nothing more for my blog for a couple of weeks. Those in the vicinity of Hood River are invited my artist's reception at The Gorge White House from 1-3pm on Sept. 5th. Also enjoy another group of my paintings during Sept. at Brian's Pourhouse while having one of their delectable dinners. 16" X 12" oil on canvas board.
I'm mostly retired and living in an area that is one of the country's premier spots for beauty- the Columbia Gorge. My house/studio is located out in the country (1st time for this city boy) bringing both joy and challenges.
