Here's the piece I painted at Amato's during "Breakfast At The Gallery" while demonstrating pastel painting Saturday, March 6th . I did most of it at the gallery with just a little touch-up in the studio. It's always fun to show the public how I paint and answer questions all the while.

One of my greatest joys is painting "en plein air", a French expression meaning in the outdoors. You'll often find me somewhere in our great Pacific Northwest reveling in its beauty and recording its landscapes in oil paints or pastels. Metolius Moment, pastel, 9"x18"

BEAVERTON, OR, January 25, 2010 - Karen Amato, owner of Amato’s Floral, Wine and Gifts, recently decided to diversify her business by including a fine art gallery in her existing location at 12320 SW 1st Street, Beaverton, Oregon. Amato said, “People are joining together to do things differently in this economy. You have to think outside the box. One of the things I did was try to put new and more exciting things into my shop and went on Craigslist to get some local artists to join this venture.”
Amato reflected, “People are careful with their money. They’re looking for something of lasting quality and value and I feel this art gallery provides exactly that. My customers have responded favorably to the changes and are delighted that we’re up and running in time for Valentine’s Day with flowers, wine, gifts, chocolate and now fine art.”
