. $72. Purchase online via Credit Card at PayPal © Pam Van Londen 2013. Willamette River 1.2. Acrylic on 12x12x.5 gallery-edged archival canvas.
My first Willamette River painting was not so popular…the colors were subtle and perhaps dull. I’ve brightened them up and added some splash!
This brighter palette is how the river looks today on this very hot and sunny summer day.

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.

A few years ago I did some plein air painting at Cannon Beach. Most of those panels sold. One did not, so I’ve revised it…and I like it so much better.
Here is the revision. The paint ought to be dry during the second week of May 2013.
SOLD. Canyon Dreams 33 © Pam Van Londen 2013. Oil on 8×8-inch canvas panel. Unframed.
One more in a long series of canyon vistas.
SOLD © Pam Van Londen 2013. Oil on 8×8-inch canvas panel.
Oregon’s Willamette Valley provides spectacular skies full of clouds that cast rich shadows on the valley floor.
This original oil painting should be ready to ship by May 5, 2013.
SOLD © Pam Van Londen 2010, Frazier Wetland 2, 8×8 Oil on Clayboard
Last weekend my daughter and I were enjoying the wetlands to paint and do homework. It was peaceful, but hard to paint due to having 2 dogs who want to greet all the passing dogs.
It was a very green day but of course, I like to find the hidden colors to paint.
$64 © Pam Van Londen 2010, 18th Street Snow 3, 8×8 acrylic on Claybord $64 © Pam Van Londen 2010, Snowy Path, 8×8 acrylic on Claybord
The snow day afforded me the opportunity to lay low and work at the easel today. I enjoyed working with iridescent acrylics on the Ampersand Claybord panels.
SOLD © Pam Van Londen 2010, Greg Sarris’ Garden 7, 8×8 oil on claybord
Greg Sarris’ garden provides so many lovely painting scenes; I have yet to finish them all.
Can you smell the lavender and hear the grass rustling while the bees buzz around?
SOLD © Pam Van Londen 2010, Arctic 2, 8×8 Acrylic on Clayboard SOLD © Pam Van Londen 2010, Arctic 3, 8×8 Acrylic on Clayboard
I’ve switched to acrylic paint lately to see how it works on Ampersand Claybord panels. I like its staining properties and the textures created when I remove partly-dried paint.
In addition, I’m using interference and iridescent paints to provide interesting color effects, which can be seen when you move from right to left. These paints also provide 3-D texture at full strength.
Come to Fall Festival to view them in person…the photos don’t catch all the fascinating nuances.
Purchase this new batch of iridescent water media paintings at my

While the kids are practicing soccer, I was practicing painting. We are lucky to have such a great sports park next to our Willamette River.
This painting was painted en plain air and goes with these other paintings:
Avery Park Trees, Willamette River Paint Out.
This is the beginning of a set of piller images in iridescent watercolor on 7×5-inch rag paper. Purchase them at

I was in the mood for something new when I found some rice paper with swirls and these lightweight wooden plates. I painted on them with iridescent colors and finished with two layers of satin varnish.
Stop by the Mod Pod on Second Street to see these in person.
SOLD © Pam Van Londen 2010, Cote d’Azur 1, 8×8
Join the monthly virtual paintout…May’s is almost over….I was able to get this in just in time.
SOLD © Pam Van Londen 2010, Park Trees, 8×8 oil on claybord
I like swirls; you like swirls; so I painted more swirls.
I live in Orange country so had to use a saturated an orange hue as I could, along with my favorite color blue-green.
If you’re an artist I highly recommend participating in the weekly challenge at
Daily Paintworks. $64 © Pam Van Londen 2010, Avery Park Trees 4, 8×8 oil on claybord
The Daily Paintworks Challenges are fun to work on, so here’s another one for the Color Challenge. I’m using a split compliment scheme (traditional color wheel).
This composition is easy and allows me to focus just on the color arrangement.
I’ve also used sgraffito here to provide a bit of whimsical detail.
SOLD © Pam Van Londen 2010, Hot Cocoa with Shiny Giftbag, 8×8 oil on claybord
I’ve painted this one to meet the
Daily Paintworks challenge. I’ve used my usual loose style in oil on Claybord.
It’s hard to get the really saturated colors present on the shiny purple giftbag…it reflects a lot of permanent rose but purple diazinon does not dry shiny…it dries flat, so perhaps later I’ll add a shiny varnish.
Yes, I drank the cocoa. Mmmmm.

The winter blues are over…I feel like painting again. Soon I’ll be painting outside again.
I’ve been asked to offer a painting workshop, which I am thinking about. If you are are interested in learning to paint in oil on claybord,
use my contact form to let me know. $64 © Pam Van Londen 2010, KahNeeTa 1, 8×8 oil on claybord
Our weekend trip to Central Oregon was an adventure. The terrain looks much like Arizona and New Mexico with red, gold, and white-painted hills.
This painting was done with a butter knife because I forgot my brushes! I have many more planned (with and without a knife), so stay tuned.

Virtual Paintout is Czech Republic. This scene was shot by Google in Prague.
Perhaps someday I’ll get to travel there in person.
$50 © Pam Van Londen 2010, Portland Rose Festival Float, Oil on 8×8-inch archival Claybord panel, unframed.
Years ago I photographed some water floats waiting for a Portland Rose Festival race. I’m finally getting around to working on some paintings from the references.
This is a close up of a larger photo offered in the May 2010 Monthly Painting Challenge. Join in and show us your ideas! $50 © Pam Van Londen 2010, Mary’s Peak 6, 8×8 oil on clayboard
This quick sketch of Mary’s Peak outside Corvallis and Philomath uses exaggerated color and the same transparent oil on Claybord technique I’ve been using lately.
SOLD © Pam Van Londen 2010, Crow on the Beach 4, 8×8 oil on clayboard SOLD © Pam Van Londen 2010, Crow on the Beach 5, 8×8 oil on clayboard
A popular series of recent paintings is of crows. Here are some images painted from video I took at another trip to Taft, Oregon, south of Lincoln City on the Oregon coast.
I’m trying the same technique as the canyon series where I start with an alizarin crimson underpainting and layer thinned pure hues on top, using as few brush strokes as possible.
