I figured I should plug Rachel’s latest series – they are inspired by seeds collected on walks around the neighborhood and through Hoyt Arboretum. From there she took off and abstracted a variety of seeds she was familiar with as well.   The work is drawn with graphite and then painted with watercolor, and an elegant departure from her other work.  See more images on her site.   She has been working on the series for over a year and will display them for the first time next week at Tilde here in Portland.  Their is an opening reception on July 3rd from 6-9pm and the work will be up all month.  Feel free to stop in to see the paintings and check out the other wonderful wares by local artists and designers.  Tilde is at 7919 SE 13th Ave in Sellwood.
