After a years' hiatus, I'll be producing a Portland photo calendar for 2018. Because, as usual, I waited until the last month to get it done, It'll have 13 months, January 2018-January 2019.

If you buy a new calendar, you're entitled to at least 12 months' worth, I think.

All the photos in this calendar are ones I've taken of my beloved home town, Portland, Oregon, quite possibly the world's most photogenic city. Oh, she's going through changes, and there's growing pains but still ... we call her home.

Final images are being uploaded to Lulu.com, and I expect them to go on sale this weekend.

Tell ya friends! Share! And watch this space.

3568 I've begun painting the PaintWorks piece Taste of Italy. And there is a ton of detail here and with the glorious opportunities thereunto and the advanced techniques I have a chance to employ, I get a 'tyranny of choice' situation. It's impossible to ch...

A Glance At "Pencilgraphing", a Vintage How-To-Draw Book From the Thirties
3567 It's evolved that one of the things I'm coming to greatly enjoy as age presents itself to me is the idea of antique and vintage art instuctionals. There have been people who want to make a living teaching the average you'n'me how to make drawing a hobb...

Vintage Walter T. Foster Publication Celebrating The "New" Acrylics
3566 Very old how-to-draw publications find their way to Powell's, as I've shown before. This one here is an unexpected delight, and timely into the bargain. This is the front cover of what appears to be a periodical, or at least an occasional series, calle...

The Daily Paint By Number: Unboxing Dimensions PaintWorks <i>Taste Of Italy</i>
3565 So, this is a first for this blog ... an 'unboxing' post. Only this isn't any sort of tech toy. This is a Dimensions PaintWorks PBN kit, the most advanced one I've seen yet, a light-year ahead of any I've done so far. The-clock-she-is-a-ticking, so let...

The Daily Paint By Number: 50's Diner, Completed
3564. So, I glide-pathed gracefully into the end of Royal & Langnickel's PAL28-3T: 50's Diner. Of the various projects I've done since PBN has re-introduced itself to me, and me, it, this has been by far the most fun and satisfying. Whoever designed the kit...

On Entering Into Painting with Acrylics
3563. The recent fun and adventure of The Daily Paint By Number series has really turned me on to the idea of painting with acrylics as an ongoing thing. There is a great deal about painting with acrylics that I've heard: They're versatile, vibrant colors, ...

The Daily Paint By Number: 50's Cars at the 50's Diner
3562. The detail on the cars is complete. The colors are rich and bold and fun. The richness and boldness of the colors really kind of kick this up to a whole 'nother level that Flying Fortress didn't go to, and that level has made this picture a whole lot ...

Zob the Glob and the Pause That Refreshes
3561. Or, to mix commercial metaphors and taglines, let's just say that Zob probably does this at 10, 2, and 4. We are a Dr Pepper household after all. Zob the Glob by The Wife™. Used with permission. Zob loves him a little soda pop, but who doesn't?

The Daily Paint By Number: 50's Diner, 50's Car
3560. Proceeding with the painting, I've blocked in the sky and parking lot and the trees, the cars, and the building stand out in negative space. This has so far been a most satisfying experience; I love the rendering and the colors they've chosen. Despite...
