Monochrome and Art Walk for Annie

Tulips in Jar
8 x 10
raw umber and white on canvas panel

Still putting miles on my oil brushes as I learn the vowels and consonants of this medium. In time, I will feel confident about it and be able to describe with more elegant language what I see. For now it's very simple "See Dick. See Dick run."

Although I do not know her, I have been moved by the story of fellow artist, Annie Salness and her recovery from a serious stroke earlier this year. Many artists are donating work to raise funds to help cover her medical expenses. This is my donation, a little scene from my favorite Ridgefield National Wildlife Refuge.

You can help by coming to the auction and making a purchase of art. 100% of the proceeds go toward Annie's medical expenses. "Art Walk for Annie", Tuesday, December 7, 6:30-8:30 pm Sunset Presbyterian Church Lobby 14986 NW Cornell Road (xHwy 26, by Phoenix Inn and Arco Station) Portland OR 97229
