This large abstract landscape painting of Oregon and Washington’s famed Columbia Gorge includes a view of Beacon Rock as seen from Roster Rock State Park. It is based on a plein air oil painting completed in 2007.

Columbia River: Beacon Rock from Rooster Rock. Sold.

The technique uses a red-orange underpainting with loose brushstrokes on top. In some areas, iridescent pearl paint is added to remind viewers of the shiny reflections on the water and just-rained-on foliage, sand, and rocks and the glare of the sun as you drive past this unique vista.

The large 4-foot square format is suitable for hanging on a tall and wide wall where the viewing distance is 10 feet or more. Consider it for your dining room, entry hallway, or office foyer.

The surface is acrylic paint that wraps around the edges. The sturdy support is ready to hang with wire and two hooks. The price is $800 and includes shipping to anywhere inside of Oregon. Shipping to other states or countries is at the buyer’s discretion. Contact me to rent this painting for $100 per month.

Purchase via Etsy with PayPal, Visa, Mastercard, or American Express.

This new painting is a remake of an older painting, which I could not stand to look at anymore. This version has more drama and is much more fun to look at. The sand from the original plein air painting session is still visible, adding an interesting texture.

Last month I camped at Cape Kiwanda with family and had the chance to paint the dunes. Today I finished up the details.

I’ve exaggerated the color and pattern just for fun! The wind blew those two days of painting, so you’ll notice a bit of sand in the paint.

 

Park Trees 4

The OSU campus has many interesting trees to paint from. Everyone morning when I walk to the office, I see all manner of shapes, sizes, and colors to study.

You might notice I am building a series of oil paintings that use swirling brush strokes and very bright colors. This is my favorite style to paint.

Two of these works are at the Mod Pod in downtown Corvallis. If you like what you see, we can meet to view the rest of them in person.
