Well the days here are typical summer, cold, windy and rainy for a week at a time with 1 nice day, then cold, windy and rainy again. I miss a real summer. We did drive over to Scottsburg, OR. to pick organic blueberries. Estill farms has two fields, one in Scottsburg that is organic and one in Drain, OR that is not. This is our second trip this month. They have a bumper crop and have reduced the price to $1.25lb. It is so much fun to be in the field just picking berries. I have enough now for the year. Everything from blueberry pie, muffins, cake, cobbler and everyday a blueberry smoothie. Can't beat it.
I also managed a few pieces of art.
The first is a young man that was sitting in the Dr's office in Salem. Mike was called in and so I pulled out a pencil and paper and started drawing the young man across the room. He was young with beautiful bold features. He was called back just after I got him sketched in, so the rest is pretty much done from memory. I was hoping he would come back out so I could show him, but we left before that.

A while ago I was asked to sit for a group of artist here in Florence that meet once a month to draw from life. Here is one of the drawings of me.
It looks a bit like me.
Oh and here is the last haul of blueberries

Honor and integrity in art, in life.
