You might have seen some of the sneak-peeks of my 2017 vegetable calendar. I’m so excited that it’s almost complete. It will be available at Portland Open Studios

and Washington County Open Studios in October. 















I chose vegetables this year because I eat them every day, 

they’re beautiful to look at, and there are SO many of them!


I discovered the Vegetables by Month chart by Cook Smarts, in my research. It’s a handy and beautiful way to make sure you’re buying your veggies at their peaks! 









I’ve had fun this summer going to the Portland Farmers Market to buy vegetables… 

(and fruits, and flowers, and listen to music…) 











and create them into still lifes … 















 and do some color studies.
