I have a piece “The River King” included in the “Love of Portland” group show this month. This portrait is of Conrad who visited my open studio last October. He is a musician and artist and has modeled before so was not at all camera-shy, when I asked to take his photo. He is also homeless by choice, and a delightful person to get to spend time with. I love how this portrait evolved into a cascade of water with the Steele bridge placed as a crown on his head.
Join me at the opening: Saturday, February 16; 5-9pm
Where: Peoples Art of Portland Gallery
Pioneer Place Mall (3rd floor) 700 SW 5th Ave
The fabulous artwork will be displayed until March 10.
