Before I jump in:
This is such a big deal for me!
I'm excited and grateful and proud.
These four pieces of 4'x4' art depicting local legend Linus Pauling are now part of the permanent collection at Revolution Hall...and one of them is MINE!
I'm so honored to be included with this batch of artists!
This venue is GORGEOUS and the lighting for viewing art is incredible. It's not quite as incredible for taking photos, apparently. You've really gotta see these in person!
Linus Pauling is the only person to win the Nobel Prize TWICE. Once for Chemistry and the Peace Prize for his activism. Many people know him (unofficially) as the 'Vitamin C Guy'!
He attended high school at what is now Revolution Hall, a beautifully renovated concert and performing arts venue.
Revolution Hall is also home to Martha's Cafe & Bar...AND they've got a rooftop bar with incredible views Portland!
So go see a show or eat some food or have some drinks or look at the view...and see some art while you're there! (There's a dog park right outside...so you can probably squeeze some dogs, too.)
Big thanks to Chris Haberman for always having faith in my art even when I was just starting out and had a ton to learn! Thanks to Jim Brunberg as well...and everyone at Revolution Hall. Jim built those gorgeous frames for such large pieces!
And thank you to everyone who continues to support me. Seriously, thank you.
I work super hard and being artist is definitely comes with the highest of highs and the lowest of lows at times! ALL WORTH IT.
