So far I've only put down the base colors, later on I'll add the shading. For an experiment, I basically painted with colors straight from the tube. I did this as an exercise and contrast from my other finished painting (below) which requires careful mixing to get the effect needed.
Eventually these will all be prints, and be for sale on my Etsy site, which should be up soon.

To be quiet honest, a spoon of yogurt has more culture than my town.
(and I mean that in the nicest possible way of course!)
Again, this is a local, low cost, high quality, artsy and semi-unusual Portland business. Although Trader Joe's is only a market, they take pride in providing the naturalest, freshest merchandise for their customers. If you've ever been to a farmers market, Trader Joe's is much like; hand painted signs, murals of the surrounding country side, and games for little ones please the eye with bright colors, and silly characters. My family loaded up about 150 dollars of grocerys for the cabin and we took off for Rockaway Beach.
