Second Demonstration

This is a closer view of the wetlands painted without a reference. It`s interesting to me that I use my visual memory so much more as I age while the 'real' one is so predictably unreliable. Below is my hardworking intern, Cooper. Portland Open Studios and Portland Community College partnered to give young creative students an opportunity to be involved in the tour. The final weekend begins Saturday at 10. I`ll be demonstrating mixed watermedia on Yupo, the plastic paper from Japan, at noon on both days.

What a great idea to have students involved like this.

Visual working memory is a good thing to cultivate! The trick is to hold on to it all long-term. Harvard and MIT did a study on why / how we hold some images long-term while others fade completely away. Apparently, meaningfulness matters.
