Great news!

I received an email from the Portland Ketchup Company (Portlandia Foods) informing me my drawing (Sentimental Journey) had been selected to be featured on one of their labels for their Worcestershire sauce bottles.

The Newels of Timberline Lodge: Walking Tour

This is a 4" x 18" card that folds down to 4" x 6".  Depending on how you open it, one side is a brief history of the lodge and the unique bird and animal newels that were carved from 1935 - 1937 during the WPA project.  The card comes in a clear plastic protective sleeve. 

The other side are the newels arranged in the order you will find them in the lodge starting from the ground floor walking up the stairs:

To purchase the card:  Shipping is included. Note:  The watermark does not appear on the card.

Also available at the front desk of the lodge while supplies last.

Ye Old Grog Distillery

This week I took my plein air group out to Ye Old Grog Distillery in St Helens, OR.  This is in my journal so it's never going to be out and about.  I used watercolor again.  It's a heck of a lot faster than working in colored pencil.  Currently I don't have fine brushes so I used water soluble pencils for the lettering.  What a fun morning.

The slow version of the 2017 Quick Draw

I decided to complete this years Quick Draw piece.  I learned lots by finishing the piece.  I would have needed another six hours to finish what I started.  Next year I will have to think about how to change my approach to be finished in under two hours - the competition timeline.
