|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.
