Care and Feeding of a Blog, Part 3

August, 2012 - It's a joy to be invited to participate in the  wonderful event close to home, the 2012 Pacific Northwest Plein Air Competition and Exhibition at the Columbia Center for the Arts in Hood River, Oregon. Below are just a few of the pastel paintings I created en plein air during the event. Hmm, looks like I had fixated on painting gardens and flowers.

"Camille's Garden" by Gretha Lindwood, pastel, 6"x6" - SOLD

"Glorious Summer" by Gretha Lindwood, pastel, 12"x18"

"Marie Louise's Garden" by Gretha Lindwood, pastel, 6"x9"

"Color ways" by Gretha Lindwood. pastel, 9"x12" - SOLD

September, 2012 - A trip to Pennsylvania and West Virginia to visit the in-laws included sightseeing, a canoe paddle down the very rocky Susquehanna River, a meet-up with Kate Sturman who is a former resident at ARNA in Sweden, and a birthday party. A fun time!

Here I am looking a bit grim with a view of Three Mile Island Nuclear Power Plant behind me.

Susquehanna River...wide but shallow with a great many rocks to negotiate

Susquehanna River...keeping a weather eye open for rocks

Susquehanna River...has its own Lady Liberty statue 

More updates to come...
