Elio's Columbia River Gorge Workshop quickly approaches and he still has some spots left. I'm looking forward to learning and painting again this year with Elio, he is a great guy, who is so free with his knowledge and his excitement is contagious we painted from sunrise tell sunset on multiple occasions last year.
Breathtaking views! What else can you say about this wonderful location. Simply one of the most spectacular places I have ever painted.The focus of this workshops will be painting on location from direct observation.
Training the eye to better understand the concepts of composition, design and color harmony is a vital aspect of painting outdoors. You will learn to address shape, edge, value and impressionistic color to indicate the outdoor landscape.
His goal as an instructor is to give his students the foundation necessary to express themselves . http://www.blog.eliocamacho.com/
Elio's second annual Columbia River Gorge Workshop approaches. I absolutely had a blast last year painting from sunrise to sunset with some of you and I am looking forward to another paint FILLED week.
Just like last year the workshop "officially" ends around 4 but anyone interested in burning the candle at both ends can stay and paint till sunset or just sit back and watch.
The Tuition is $450.00 for five days 9 am to 4 pm Monday through Friday with a break for lunch. Each class will start with a demonstration, followed by individual instruction at each student's easel.

Coming up in Cannon Beach at DragonFire Gallery
is the not-to-be missed opening of a special memorial show for Mari Rockett. As co-founder of DragonFire Gallery, she was a mentor to many artists and a committee member on the public art project, Sculpture Without Walls. Following her death in March, many artists and staff felt moved to do something to honor Mari and her passion for the arts. The result is Mari’s Fire, a show of work donated by artists in widely diverse mediums, all inspired by memories of Mari. All gallery proceeds from the show will go towards a piece of public art honoring Mari and her contribution to the arts in Cannon Beach and beyond.
Mari’s idea of a great party was the gallery chock full of artists and art lovers enjoying the creative process with live music and good food & drink at hand. Join us and help make June 20th that kind of party. Lee Clingman and Luminos will provide music while Inspired! Café will whip up some memorable food. For those who can’t get to town, there will be a special listing section on the website for viewing and purchasing.
Mari’s Fire burns on…

The Pacific Northwest is Plein Air Painter Paradise. Each year, artists gather in the Columbia River Gorge to take in the stunning beauty of its black basalt cliffs, ribbon-like waterfalls, and lush fir forests. In November 1986, Congress recognized the unique beauty of the Gorge when it made it the nation's first National Scenic Area. In a very small area, there is a diverse range of climate zones for artists to paint. Nestled along the Columbia River, the town of Hood River sits between the two snow capped volcanoes Mt. Hood and Mt. Adams. Only a 10 minute drive to the East takes you to the Transitional Zone where the Cascade Mountain Range meets the Desert. The High Desert and Deschutes River are 35 minutes further. To the West, visitors can wander the temperate rain forest and discover alpine lakes and streams. Portland is 1 hour West of Hood River and the scenic Oregon Coast is 2.5 hrs West of Hood River.Fee: $25.00 (Pacific Northwest Plein Air Show)Event Dates: 8/27/09 - 9/30/09Entry Deadline: 6/30/09
