Portland furniture gallery takes on my work
Maldonado’s in the Sellwood neighborhood of Portland, Oregon will be selling my portrait and landscape paintings this season.Maldonado's storefront sign

Sellwood is a refurbished neighborhood in Southeast Portland where you will find many galleries, antique shops, and specialty boutiques, in addition to fantastic food, such as Fat Alberts, Le plangue, and Caprial’s, to name a few.

The new owners of Maldonado’s consign furniture, works of art, locally-made candles, and other artisan gifts.

Visit Sellwood and the store during their community side-walk sale on August 9, 2008. I’ll be there painting and showing more pieces on the South corner Tenino and 13th streets.
