Inside this book which is the "Expanded version" you will find Photography captured in Northwest Oregon, Stunning Oregon Sunsets, Portland Oregon Japanese Garden, woodlands and Fine Art Paintings with various subject matters, including information on what I use for paper and my mediums, WIP's / work in progress. This is step by step snap shots on how I, as an Artist work and create.
I have been drawing since I could pick up a Pencil. Was one of those children that drew her answers at school, instead of writing them. In High school I came under the tutelage of Ms Fashion, who was a master Artist in her own right. She was my mentor for over two years in all things to do with art. As a Teen, my paintings were entered in a number of Art Shows frequently winning top honors. Continued to focus on my Art education primarily on the old Masters' style of painting and when possible at Fine Art museums. I pride myself in staying versatile by using ,water based oils, Pen & Ink with watercolor pencil wash, traditional water color, graphite and other media. Have also, always been interested in Photography. Had 3 years of photography classes which included developing film. I now use an Olympus Evolt 510 digital camera.
