http://www.portlandopenstudios.com). My studio will be open from 10 am to 5 pm on October 9th, 10th, and the following weekend of the 16th, 17th. These events are always fun for me and as one of the featured artists in this year's tour guide and after the purchase prize this past winter, it should be a busy year.
As a reminder, Portland Open Studios is an artist run organization that brings together and opens the studios of 100 artists in the Portland area. The public is invited in to see and learn about the work and the process. It's a diverse group with people working in a wide range of media. While my space is open to anyone who wishes to come by, you can pick up a Tour Guide ($15) in calendar format that comes with a map, pictures of all artists' artwork, and contact information (I've got a nice spread on page 3).
Each year I've been pestered to put prices out next to paintings. I've always resisted as I prefer to see these weekends as a chance to interact with the public outside of the pressures of making a sale. But as you know, it's been a trying year for us. While out daughter is doing quite well despite her many surgeries, we've still got a long road ahead of us and, we've learned, it's a toll road. I'll be putting prices out, those prices are negotiable, and I'll be pulling out some older work with fire sale prices.

I hope you can find some time to visit. If you'd like some more information or would like to come by at another time, please let me know.
p.s. For those that came by last year, you'll be pleased to know that it's not quite a construction site any more.
