Doug’s Report

Dear Albert,

I am pleased to report that I have received 1st Place for my pastel “Reflections” at the National Audubon Society Mill Grove Art Show. The show is in this amazing rustic stone barn and it is attended by Society members nationally and by many people in the area. The show will run to the end of April.

At the end of April I will also be a featured artist for the GNAL Art Trail. My home and studio will be open Saturday and Sunday for people to come in and tour. I have done this before and I get about 80 people over the two days and I sell 20 – 30 paintings. I am also teaching a series of Plein Air classes for my local art league. As I help students at the easel or do end of day critiques I often think of your comments over the many years I have studied with you. Helping students resolve their paintings has taught me about resolving mine. I will send in a separate e-mail my last demo painting called “Spring at Last”.

Thank you Albert for your friendship and so freely sharing your amazing art vision. I have grown so much as an artist working with you. You have given legs to my desire to paint and teach. Oregon will be amazing this August!

Love and gratitude,
