On the last day of the Work Shop, we returned to Island Park to paint, I had a great time and at the end of the day, Ellen Gabehart the Instructor, had a critique session to look at everyone's paintings, and I think all students at the workshop had a good time and we all learned something.

Here is my painting of Day 3, we met at the 5th Street Market, a small colorful shopping center, I found a great shady spot to paint, giving me a view of a upper level sitting area, one can see our instructor Ellen Gabehart speaking to Kathy, a fellow student, painted in oil on a 11 by 14 canvas panel. By the way, our group was featured on the front-page of the Eugene Register-Guard, the local newspaper, with a nice photo.
