This is my favorite time of the year in Portland. The late afternoon light is ideal for shooting pictures, there's a slight crisp in the air, and I can start wearing layers. I love scarves, in particular. The beautiful hand-dyed scarf is from Driftwood & Fossil.
Our family had a couple of outings this weekend. On Friday, we took advantage of free admission night at the Portland Art Museum. We spent an hour looking mostly at the works of Oregon artists. I can't wait to come back in a few weeks to see the upcoming exhibit, The Body Beautiful in Ancient Greece.
On Saturday, we drove to a farm outside of town to pick some apples, asian pears, tomatoes, and raspberries. We couldn't have asked for more perfect weather. On our way home, we witnessed the stunning sky and moon. Mt. Hood was in a purple glow. I had never seen anything like it before.
My time at my art desk has been limited this week, but I did start a marker drawing inspired by a trip to central Oregon in August. One of my goals this fall for my Etsy shop is to add more 11" x 14" prints. I just listed a larger print of In the deep dark woods. I'm hoping to finish a couple new print designs this month, including the one shown above.
