I’ve been accepted into the juried 2010 Audubon Society of Portland Wild Arts Festival. Now in it’s 30th year, the Wild Arts Festival celebrates nature in the work of regionally and nationally-known artists and writers. It has become the northwest’s premier show and sale of nature-related art and books.
I will be selling abstract botanical inspired paintings, botanical drawings, bird and flora illustrations and paintings using encaustic (beeswax, tree sap and pigment), colored pencil, watercolor and walnut ink.
I’m delighted to participate in this show because I turn to nature for my subject and natural materials in my mediums. I also work to be mindful in my studio practices and disposal of my materials which supports environmental sustainability.
The show runs Saturday and Sunday, November 20-21 in the Montgomery Park Atrium and Ballroom. Admission is $5.
