Yesterday I delivered the first group of works to Art Elements Gallery in Newberg, Oregon. I hope that these are the first of many, many pieces that are lucky to hang in this elegant space on the threshold of Oregon’s wine country. I feel fortunate to be amongst such great artists such as Theresa Andreas-0’Leary, Romona Youngquist, Lori Latham,Don Bishop, Brenda Boylan, Mike Baggetta, and Molly Reeves, just to name a few.
Starting a new gallery relationship is always really exciting and this is especially true for me working with Art Elements being a such a lovely, professional, local gallery. It will be easy to make sure they have new fresh work and driving out to the wine country, taking in the beautiful views can’t be bad!
After taking care of details at the gallery, lunch at a great local spot recommended by Sarah…Recipe.
I indulged in a big hamburger and spent a lovely time under a canopy of trees on their patio.
Then we ventured onto some back roads to scout possible painting locations. I’d brought my gear, but in the end, my knee wasn’t quite ready for a roadside plein-aire afternoon. So we skipped painting and instead took pictures and stopped at a local fruit stand and got some great plums.
