Portland Skyway


sold

Last weekend some friends and I drove to Portland to watch Kevin Macpherson do a FREE demo (what a nice guy!). There were about 50 other people watching (can you believe those moochers?!). Kevin talked while he painted (a skill I don't possess), and said all sorts of things that were fabulous to hear. He's nice, funny AND a great painter! Afterwards we all spread out and painted, while Kevin walked around giving pointers. He said mine was a "keeper," and that I should sell it, so here it is. : )

In other news, yesterday I got a pre-copy of my book!!! And I am so absolutely bowled over by it, I actually went out into the street and yelled, "I'M SO HAPPY!" That's how happy I was...am. It looks amazing! So you know, you can still pre-order it on Amazon. (and save quite a bit by doing so). The official launch date is Nov. 4th.

I love this painting, I have a massive fear of big bridges , that's crossing them! I just love paintings of them, I'm weird, right?
I'm from Scotland, please look up artist Kate Downie Forth Bridge Paintings, they are fab!x

I really admire Portland Skyway, not only for the subject but also or the rendering/execution = pure Marine!

Love your painting Carol. I love how you simplified the composition by eliminating the ground plane. Btw.. I was there that day(the Indian gal who said hi to you just before you left :)).
