Mt. Tabor Art Walk: Saturday and a Brief GASP Repor

Some pictures from today's Mt. Tabor Art Walk. We'll be doing it again tomorrow--11-5!

I'm fortunate to be hosted by a talented painter and delightful person: Helen Snyder-Dickson

Robin Brown is also showing at Helen's. Here she sets up a display of her hand-painted Ukrainian style eggs

I made some small ink and watercolor pieces during the Art Walk (You can pick up one of these Serena Barton Originals from 3 to 5 bucks!)

A visitor named Julia took a turn at an ink and watercolor drawing

Robin demonstrates to a fascinated mother/son duo

Guests view an altered book for the first time

Hope you'll join us tomorrow for the Art Walk!

Garage Art Studio Project (GASP) update: I finally got the permit. Now we can really begin the transformation!

Steve holds permit

Contractor Steve and I emerged bleary eyed and dazed from the City Development Office after our recent visit of 2.5 hours--permit in hand. Even after we had negotiated several interviews and stood at the cashier's desk, there was some glitch. Never did know what it was, but at last we emerged victorious. Below, I hold the permit packet for dear life!

Love your blog...thanks for posting all the great pictures....wish I lived in Portland I would pop by for the Art show...but live in Salem and have plans today.

Love your work...see you at Art and soul.

Don't you love have a studio...I just built mine last year and finished a few months ago...not even finished moving in...all my stuff is just stuffed in the closet waiting to be fully organized.
You can see it on my blog.

Hi Deirdra,

Thanks for your comments! I look forward to meeting you in person at Art and Soul! I love your dolls!!

I'm curious what kind of lighting you have (overhead) in your studio. I have to figure out all that kind of stuff soon.
