I've talked in this blog about my art group, Portland Plein Air and Studio Painters, also found at http://www.portlandpleinairandstudiopainters.blogspot.com/.  We meet every Tuesday morning at O'Connor's in Multnomah Village (SW Portland).  This picture is of this morning's meeting, during a very intense and interesting conversation about whether a painting needs a "focal point."  This is the stuff artists are interested in talking about!!! 

The really fun thing this morning was that we hung a new show yesterday and Friday is "First Friday" in Multnomah Village when people come out to look at art!!! 

In this picture, you see Carrie Holst, Eileen Nelson, Michael Fischer, Celeste Bergin, Kitty Wallis (barely visible), Thomas Kitts, Lola (whose last name I don't know), Mary Luzinski, and the back of David McBride.  The empty seat is for me, your photographer.  Celeste's painting is visible in this photo, but others really aren't.  We go "big" in size for these shows,and it looks great!.  My painting is not visible in this picture.  It was posted on this blog on February 2 as "Winter Project,"  if you want to take a look.
