I just received the news this week that my home town, Lebanon, Oregon, has selected me for a commission for their brand new public library. I will be doing a 4'x6' painting for the fireplace wall. I was born in the building that for many years was the library and before that the Lebanon Community Hospital. It is gratifying to know that I will have a painting in this wonderful new community building. As a staff member of the Friends of Multnomah County Library in Portland, and having been born and raised in Lebanon, this is doubly rewarding.
