visit with Dori Dewberry!

Dori holds a value painting from Kitty Wallis' workshop
I met Dori Dewberry a couple of years ago at a Kitty Wallis Color Intensive workshop in Portland. We were "tablemates," which means we shared a table for all of our pastel supplies. I don't think it took more than 10 minutes for me to be charmed by Dori's enthusiasm and warm laugh. I liked it that she shared nicely at the table, too!

Over these years, we have kept in loose touch by following one another's blogs (see her on my bloglist to the right of this post or click here). Since I was in Southern California on this trip, we connected face to face!

Dori's work looks great on line but looks even better in person. She has a keen sense of light and her paintings are luminous and beautiful! We had a great visit today at Dori's place.

Now, we're plotting to have Dori come up my way for a plein air field trip! I hope we make it happen!

I had such fun talking to Dori's husband, Bob, who is a musician! This one's for you, Bob.

Katherine this is so cool. Thank you for coming to visit me and making it happen in the midst of your journey. I am up for coming up and painting the great Northwest with you. I mentioned it to Marj and she said, "Need to start looking for a flight". You said so many nice things. Bob really enjoyed talking music. I will share the clip. Be safe and talk soon. PS I am starting some of the things we discussed. Thank you!
