Jon Gottschalk : artist in residency

Hi Everyone! My name is Jon. I’m the resident artist for the next couple weeks here at Oregon Country Farm. I’m an illustrator /designer out here trying to boost my botany illustration skills while I work on a few commissioned projects for folks back home [Nashville, TN].  Oregon is just as beautiful as I remembered it! I’ve had such a fantastic time so far – learning how to care for all the varied life forms here on the farm while trying to draw a few of them. Since I’m self taught, I feel I need to pay my  dues and focus on the technical side of drawing and painting via observation (at least for a short period of time) rather than follow my tendency to draw psychedelic imagined creatures and plants. So, of course, there is a bit of a learning curve that I have begun to climb. But I’m glad to do it! Whew! Alright here are some visuals y’all:

first observation with rosemary

I saw this plant in the garden and liked the colors
