Today, my friend Celeste brought a new art surface to our Tuesday morning get-together at O'Connor's restaurant in Multnomah Village, a Portland neighborhood gathering point. It is gesso on what is essentially a throw-away cardboard surface. At the meeting she made it available to all the artists who were there. Celeste is a very giving person. After the meeting, Celeste and I went to my house for our regular Tuesday sketching session (Carrie couldn't make it) and we further explored that surface. This is my painting of some small sunflowers in a vase. I used an Elegant Writer pen and then did some blending with water. We did a lot of other work, but I think this was the best of my work today. Other work can be seen at the link above. Thanks, Celeste, always fun to sketch with you!
