Our Artist of the Week is Ellen Cranch, the creator of ‘Bear & Bunny’.
‘Bear & Bunny’ is a sweet children’s book about two critters in love and enjoying being in love no matter what anyone else thinks. As the sole creator it is written, illustrated, and published by her. 
Since illustrating her own children’s book she has illustrated another by commission as well as manuals, songbooks and other stand-alone illustrations. @ellen.cranch

A brief story...
Artistic Portland has raised over $4,000 to support Sisters of The Road Cafe in Downtown Portland @sistersoftheroadpdx since member artist Michael Barley introduced this fun community bowl painting experience 18 months ago at the Co-op with no end in sight.  @cassidyquinntv from @kgwnews https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T50SUnV5_Po stopped by last year and painted a bowl to shine a light on this artful way to help support the underserved in Portland.  Here is how her bowl turned out: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zSsHM1PRMTM  Win Win!
Their mission: 
Sisters of The Road is a nonprofit Cafe in Portland’s Old Town/Chinatown neighborhood working to create systemic change that will end poverty and homelessness by providing nourishing meals in a safe, dignified space.  For more details go to their website www.sistersoftheroad.org to see how you can help.
Images from @sistersoftheroadpdx used from their Instagram account. 
We invite you to be a part of this wonderful project by painting a bowl for free on every first Thursday from 2-6pm Ceramics donated by @georgiesceramic ☕️ provided by @cafepontepdx and 🍺 by @royale_brewing #kindness #choosekindness #loveandcompassion #ceramicpdx #sistersoftheroadpdx #theheARTofportland #portlandnow #downtownpdx

@JBCreativeSilk
​Compassionate Creative Creations
Janell Bethke is finally getting comfortable calling herself an artist. Having grown up watching her mom creatively paint, Janell wondered if she had any artistic skill or talent. In college, a semester in Europe broke open a deep appreciation for color, design and the various mediums of art.
Nearly eight years ago, Janell was on retreat staring at a white silk scarf. The instructor invited them to add color to this blank canvas. Raw emotions of grief collided with a deep hunger for life as colors spread across the silk canvas. Many admired her first work and encouraged her to do more.  The following summer she took her first official silk painting class at the Grunewald Guild. Unsatisfied to wait a year until the next class, Janell learned how to do the process at home and continues to hone her creativity and skills.
Colorful images infused her mind as she recovered from a health concern. Janell held a word in her mind and imagined what it would look like painted. As strength, stamina and energy returned, she painted these images.  Many of the watchwords are also available as greeting cards.
In addition to being an artist she is a Spiritual Director, ordained Lutheran pastor, mother and spouse. Janell loves to hike and be immersed in nature.
