SOLD © Pam Van Londen 2010, Valley Morning 10, 8×8 Acrylic on Clayboard
The chilly morning with sunlight burning through the fog inspires me to paint! It is warm and cozy in the studio but I will have to venture out in the freeze to get the day’s list of chores taken care of.
This painting was stolen off the doorstep of its new owner when delivered. If you see it online or in person anywhere, please notify me or the local Police. Thank you.

We visit Beverly Beach and Otter Rock a few times per year to rejuvenate. The sunset was spectacular on July 4 this year.
SOLD © Pam Van Londen 2010, Willamette River 13, 24×36 acrylic
A birds-eye view of our beloved river: the Willamette.
Flying over provides a different perspective about our home; we see where the river has been improved, where the farms grow our food, how cities are sprawling, and where the forests have disappeared.
It can be shocking.
I’m working on some larger canvases this week (because they have been sitting here for years).
$64 © Pam Van Londen 2010, KahNeeTa 6, 8×8 acrylic on claybord
When I forgot to bring brushes to KahNeeTa resort earlier this year, I painted with a butter knife. The effect was a fresh look, so I’ve painted another. This one is also a KahNeeTa scene.
I pulled out paint tubes of color that I often ignore. I call them my ugly colors… Phthalocyanine Blue, Indanthrene Blue, Quinacridone Gold, and Sap Green. They are not so ugly when grouped together.
