Encontro-me agora de férias no Oregon, Portland, em casa de uma amiga de infância que reside neste lugar fabuloso. No dia 11 de Agosto de 2010 tivemos oportunidade de visitar a propriedade da artista Linda Engstrom, que desenvolveu um workshop onde nos ensinou algumas técnicas de desenho utilizado nos diary sketch books, mostrou-nos as suas flores, vinhas e muitas outras maravilhas do mundo onde reside. Foi um dia fabuloso.
Deixo aqui o que diz Linda de si mesma no seu blog:
I grew up on the East Coast near NYC, and earned a design degree from CORNELL UNIVERSITY. After marrying a fellow Cornellian, my husband Fred and I moved to Lancaster, Pa where I worked eight years as a room designer for Armstrong World Industries. In 1973 we moved to OREGON with our two sons and I received a degree in Landscape Design. In 1984 we established CLOUDREST VINEYARDS on 12 acres of hillside property outside of Portland. Since 1984 I have traveled and photographed gardens in England, France, Japan, Italy, Germany, and even Siberia! I am a certified member of the ASSOCIATION of PROFESSIONAL LANDSCAPE DESIGNERS, and have served on their Board of Directors as both webmaster and President( 2003). I was honored in August of 2008 to be granted fellowship by APLD. I continue to teach in the Landscape Design program at Portland Community College, and offer sketching and design workshops at my home studio.
