Happy Classes in Oregon

Happy Classes in Oregon

I just got back from my first long teaching gig since “the event.” It was a clear blue day, and on the way into Portland, we flew past Mt. Hood and Mt. Rainer.   The event was at Focus on the Book, a five day retreat for book lovers, in Forest Grove, Oregon. The guild there put it on, they are brilliant at it and all details were covered with humor and efficiency. That sounds like a 1950s drippy description of a housewife, but it is true. My first class was three days long and was called “An Intimate Atlas.” There were 13 wonderful women in the class, people that...

Passionate for Pastels

Years ago I worked with soft pastel on a fairly regular basis. I had a great teacher, Ken Goldman when I lived in San Diego. He also taught life drawing, and I learned a great deal from him. A classical approach, which I loved then and still do. In the class we drew from models. I changed them up a bit, depending on the mood of the model. I remember this model being edgy. I felt her jitters and recorded them. This is the 4 year old son of a friend of mine. He was playing in the sprinklers, then the yard, on a warm summer day. I wonder if he is still this comfortable in his own skin. This is...
