“your art is not about how many people like your work your art is about if your heart likes your work if your soul likes your work it's about how honest you are with yourself and you must never trade honesty for relatability “ — Rupi Kaur — A rather poor short video of my work @maudekernseugene Beautifully hung and the opening was lovely 😊

Before I understood how to use it, I (like many folk) feared pen and ink. How can you erase? Its so permanent! Then a wonderful teacher at @p_n_c_a told me "ah, pen and ink changes EVERYTHING." And she taught me the basic techniques. Now, I LOVE this medium (bamboo pen and ink).

This bag of donated art supplies from Blick weighs at least 25 pounds. The Latino Network has asked Open Studios artists to volunteer in an afterschool art program at four Portland area elementary schools this month. We are, as always, blown away by the generous support of anything arty by our area art stores. Bonus if you can name where we took this photo.⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #instaartists #spotlightonartists #homedecorate #workinprogressart #artforsaleonline #originalartforsale #makersformakers #inmystudio #theportlandway #pdxnow #pdxartists #artistsofinstagram #designdecor #abeautifulmess #pdxartistsatwork #artistsatwork #localartist #pnwlifestyle #portlandopenstudios #createexplore #explorecreate #tryitout #portlandartscene #PDXOS19 #portlandoregon #latinonetwork #arteducation #blick

2018 has been a wild and crazy ride! I made and sold record numbers of paintings and drawings, launched a new product line of notecards, and taught many students. I took the reins of the non profit Portland Open Studios, and was featured in the New York Times and interviewed on OPB for my Art at Work program. No one can say the artist's life is dull! Many thanks for all your support, and I am wishing YOU a tremendous, creatively productive year. Much love from the studio! xo

Seven of the paintings I completed this year, two shots of my studio, and a portrait of my studio dog Otis, who keeps me on (and off) task. I was honored this year to join Gallery 114, participate in Portland Open Studios Tour, and have work selected for inclusion in six juried shows and one publication. Best wishes to all of you for a happy and peaceful 2019. . #nativeamericanart #nativeamericanartist #gallery114 @gallery114 #portlandopenstudios2018 #portlandopenstudios @yehawshow #umpquavalleyartsassociation @uvarts @emeraldartcenter
