Jesse Reno paints "Outside the Lines"

Portland artist Jesse Reno is not only a successful self-taught artist,  but also a musician and poet, whose large works will be seen in Mexico City at a gallery show, opening very soon. "Outside The Lines" is one of many of his art books which have been published. Although he suffers from severely diminished eyesight, his paintings sing with their extraordinary colors and fanciful shapes. An earlier work on paper, (11" x 14"), which has been published in Raw Vision Magazine, is available at the gallery. It's title is "Spirit Goat" and it well represents the unique style of this highly talented and revered artist.
