I'm interested in meeting other artists, socializing, motivation, critiques, brainstorming... You can never have too many artist friends, and I will never stop learning.
Portland Figure Drawing Meetup Group page
To see things in new ways, to be motivated to finish projects that have hit a snag, truthful critiques, be exposed to new ideas and techniques. I get so much satisfaction from what I make, but can't sustain the motivation if I'm painting alone.
To increase my representational skills in oil, to improve my life drawing proportions, to finally have enough artwork to have a showing. (I tend to give it away to appreciative people)
Oil, watercolor, woodcarving, clay, quilted wallhangings... Here is a link to photos: http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=57937&id=1659651282&l=eaf6e5e9de
Alberto Vargas, Earl Moran, Harrison Fisher, Georgia O'Keefe, Steve Hanks, Olivia Berardinis

Variety of people with varied backgrounds/ media used. Honesty in critiques. Lots of enthusiasm and encouragement. Motivation to create something outside your norm(comfort zone) is provided by the monthly themes (homework).

Hey! Great pic!
I meant to tell you last night about the Wednesday night dance at the Norse Hall - it is an alternative milonga, which means that they play half traditional tangos and the other half is full of more modern music to tango to. I think you'd like it! See you next week -
I agree what cariie did is very very sneaky. Unfortunately everyone does this today and there is no value for privacy. Now we all have to be extra careful if we go to Viscount
Hormonal is my middle name, heehee. Hey, I am going to put a notice on here that I am going to offer a free 4 hr class to those interested from our group. Since I can only fit 6 people, I wanted to let you know first so that you can be in it. It will be in May, on a Sunday. Which weekends are easiest for you?
Hi Lavonne. I didn't get the chance to tell you, I really liked your piece. And thanks for saying I help inspire a little. I am honored!
