Spring in the Studio

Hello friends and Happy Spring! 

With the temperatures warm enough to feel the grass between my toes and the pleasure of two recent hikes in Forest Park with my family I am definitely feeling the energy of Spring in the studio. I am painting with acrylic on birch panels and feeling the moss muse inspiring me. Here are some pics of works in progress...click below...

I love seeing the familiar shapes of constellations show up in lichen on the path.

It was fun catching up with you. If you'd like to receive my seasonal newsletters please let me know. You can find me on FB, Instagram or send me a message at robertaaylward@gmail.com. Happy Spring!

Open Studio- October 11, 12, 18 & 19

Hello friends! This weekend is the beginning of Portland Open Studios. My studio will be open October 11, 12, 18 & 19 from 10am to 5pm. I am located at 3334 N.E. 24th Avenue just south of Fremont. On the tour, I am studio #7 - just look for the yellow signs with #7 pointing the way.

Portland Open Studios is a self-guided tour of 96 artists' studios in Portland.  You'll get a behind-the-scenes peek into studios to see how artists make their work. I will be demonstrating my process, sharing techniques and creating work all four days. Stop by, see my new paintings and then head out to see more: Check out all of the great art you can experience here and then find out where to get your Portland Open Studios tour guide.
