SOLD © Pam Van Londen 2009, Flowerpot Around the Corner, 8x8x1 on oil on clayboard
I think this is my quickest painting yet (just an hour). I’m working on loose brush strokes and exaggerated color.
I just downloaded 64 photos from my phone which were mostly gardens around my neighborhood. Corvallis is sure a pretty place to live!
Donated to the Heart of the Valley Children’s Choir annual fundraiser.

One of my favorite birds is the ceder wax wing, for it’s subtle color changes.

Any requests? Send me a photo or let me know what birds you like and I’ll paint them for you.
SOLD © Pam Van Londen 2009, Waiting for the Wave 1, 8x8x1 on oil on claybord
These two kids enjoyed skimming the waves two summers ago. I guess I’m feeling a bit sad that summer is over again. We do have such great adventures then.
Painting a wonderful memory helps it last. Consider commissioning a painting of your favorite memory. An original painting can stay in the family through many generations, adding to the family history and leaving an impression for your descendants to enjoy.

I visited the Mod Pod store earlier this week to hang some of my daily paintings and was inspired by the trendy-retro-FUN atmosphere of the place.
That experience combined with this image I saw behind my eyelids when I shut them after looking at something too long, resulted in this playful non-objective painting on canvas.
See it in person at the Mod Pod.
SOLD © Pam Van Londen 2009, Rose of Pink, 8x8x1 on oil on clayboard
During one of my walks around the neighborhood, I spotted this lovely pink rose. Who know the name of it?
Send me a request for a flower portrait.
SOLD © Pam Van Londen 2008 Portrait of Brian Kowalski, Artist 8x8x1 in oil on canvasboard
This gentleman is Brian Kowalski, an artist. He has painted a portrait of me and I of him. See both together at the Different Strokes project blog.
For this painting I focused on color and shape instead of personality…since I had no background information with which to take artistic license. I learned about him after the work was done. He resides in Canada where he paints and farms.
“very very cool. great job pam” ~ Karin Jurick.
If you are interested in original portraits in oil or acrylic, let me know. They are quite fun to paint!
