Sauvie Island Continued

Sauvie Island is located in the Columbia River, just Northwest of Portland. It makes for a great weekend day trip with it's small scale agricultural aesthetic, and sandy beaches. Last week I spent a few more hours there painting, enjoying the respite from the computer-driven commissions I've been working on. This painting below, inspired by a barn on the island may be frightfully kitsch in a Kincadian way (as in Thomas Kincade [painter of light]), but perhaps pulls through on an ironic-psychedelic level with the teal/olive-green/peach color combo. Recently, I have been working in Acrylic, but plan on returning to Oils, for their long working time, and end-all romantic aesthetic. I plan on spending a good deal of time painting in the field this summer. Also: concocting some schemes to sell at weekend markets around Portland, and online at Etsy.com. So stay tuned! Should be an adventurous summer!
