The One With the Portland Art Museum Tour

I've mentioned before that I've been taking some photo tours with Jennifer Costello to try and improve my skills. She won't be offering them anymore after this month, so I wanted to squeeze in one final session with her before that. My final tour focused on low light photography at the Portland Art Museum.

My friend Stephanie (you may remember her from this post), went with me because I won a free one. We had so much fun trapsing about the Museum. It was really too bad we had to leave early.


If you've never been to the Portland Art Museum you should go. For a few more weeks they have an exhibit on Californian Impressionists that is pretty cool. I'm a big fan of impressionism. It's my favorite. What about you? What's your favorite genre of art?

  1. As an artist myself, I enjoy reading Philip Koch's sensitive writing about Edward Hopper and Andrew Wyeth, who along with Whistler and Rothko, are my favorite American painters.
    I don't live in the United States but have traveled and passed a short time there. But even with the little time spent in your beautiful country, especially in small-town America, I can relate to some of the poetical feel that Hopper and Wyeth had captured in their art, which is for me part of the attraction of their paintings.
    Browsing at wahooart.com the other day, as I do now and then, I find a good selection of Edward Hopper's work, http://EN.WahooArt.com/@/EdwardHopper ,in the big archive of Western Art, that customers can order online for canvas prints and even hand-painted, oil-painting reproductions can be made and sent to them.
    Hopper's surrealistic and depersonalized world is there again. Timeless, yes, as it is still there now in the roadside cafes and diners that I ate at all over America.
