Art Garage With a Side of Pambiche
Talented Portland artist, Nikki Blackwood, occasionally whips together little art gatherings that she calls her Art Garage (they're held in her garage, of course). I've been before and was able to attend again on Thursday. The groups are small and intimate and brimming with talent. For this week's gathering: Tabor Porter, Judy Wise, Stephanie Brockway, Nik, and me. What a treat!
After working about an hour (yes, a whole hour!), we took off on foot for a late lunch and as it turns out, a good part of our art afternoon was spent dining at a restaurant that is a coveted Portland experience: Pambiche. (When I told my daughter where I had eaten lunch, she said "You got to eat at Pambiche!??!") Pambiche serves cuban creole cuisine and was a real treat, as you can probably tell from these photos:
I worked on a couple of journal pages during the time we did do some art - here's a peek at my pages in process.
