This latest commissioned acrylic on canvas of Mary’s Peak is helping fund my daughter’s trip to Greece to sing at a Choir Festival.

In honor of Fall Festival, I’ve revised a larger painting that has been hiding in various places for 4 years. I’ve added more vibrant colors, including iridescent ivory, cream, and copper. The composition is almost the same.

After playing with iridescent oil sticks last night at the First Thursday Art Walk, I had the urge to use them again.
This morning, I worked on canvas panels so the texture would easily pick up the oil. With the alizerin crimson underpainting and shimming deep colors, I was able to recreate a majestic atmosphere. And the sgraffito adds a bit of whimsey.

This trio of oil paintings on canvas board are images from artist Donna Beverly‘s property outside Philomath, Oregon.
They are painted in the Impressionist style instead of my more unique style of underpainting in alizeran crimson and abstracting the landscape with large obvious brushstrokes.
From this perch, you can see for miles on a clear day. If you sit there awhile, you notice the light changing.
The first one was revised in 2013.

After another evening of peaceful painting out of doors, I have this panel to show. Painting sheep so small was not as easy as I expected, so I’ll be practicing more.
Oregonians are so lucky to have such beautiful country so close at hand. Just a minute’s drive and we are out into the fresh air and rural settings.
