Paint out notes, June 29, 2018

Today we visited the Diebenkorn exhibit at the Portland Art Museum. We learned a lot about Diebenkorn's early career (he won a grant for $1200 and used the money to live for a YEAR in New York City. (Well, it was the 1950's).


Diebenkorn painted non-objectively, but then also painted plein air and from life (He's painting outdoors in this photo)


After checking out the exhibit some of us painted in the Park Blocks, directly in front of the Museum.
It was very fun to paint with everyone, but the "guests of honor" were ("Charter Member") Carolyn Rondthaler, who is visiting from Washington, DC and Nanine Alexander, visiting from Barcelona.

Our next Paint Out is Thursday July 5, 9am. Our host is Geri Graley.  We will meet at the Portland Women's Fourm. We'll update with an invitation from our blog and on Facebook too.
