Elizabeth BaumanNewsletter February 2010, Volume 5
As I have mentioned before, I am having a show at Tilde in Portland, Oregon in March. The paintings, about 25 of them, will hang there from March 4 through March 27th. There will be an artist reception on March 5th from 6-9pm. If you are in the area, please stop in either at the reception (and say hello!) or sometime during the month. You will get to see the paintings below along with about 19 others (which are already among some of the paintings on my Flickr)
Tilde is located at 7919 SE 13th Ave Portland, Oregon 97202.
For the last paintings for the show, I decided to do some simple portraits. Although I am pleased with all of them, the last one will be the hardest to part with. The photograph I based it on is so wonderful. You will definitely see her again, though always a little different (like in this one: "On this day")

As I am taking a short break from painting, there will be no newsletter in March. I hope to finish a couple of oil paintings (I swear they will get done, I think I started them in August if not earlier) and when that happens I will post them directly on my blog. Once the paintings from the show have returned to me (the ones that did not sell, naturally) I will be putting them into my shop and will send out a newsletter then with a special discount so stay tuned.
