© 2013 Pam Van Londen. Park Trees 14. Watercolor on 12x9x.25 on archival paper. Comes unframed $27 Purchase via Credit Card or PayPal.
My granddaughter and I sat under a willow tree one hot day to paint. Then her little friend came by to paint as well. It was lovely and inspiring to paint with such young artists.
The iridescent colors are fun to share with others and add a bit of fantasy to the work. This one sparkles as you move across the viewing plane.
SOLD © 2013 Pam Van Londen. Daisies At The Fence. Acrylic on 12x12x.5 gallery-edged archival canvas. No need to frame.
An old wooden fence and a field full of Shasta daisies is a common scene in Oregon in the summer.
. $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.

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.

I’m glad pears last a long time when sitting on the counter. I will keep painting this pair of pears until they are ready to eat.
Chef’s Jubilee Auction © Pam Van Londen 2010, Pear 1, 8×8 Acrylic on Clayboard
One of my friends/clients/art patrons has been looking at pear paintings, which motivated me to finally paint one. I have not painted a pear since I was in collage oh so many years ago.
This one is painted very loosely in acrylic on Claybord. I like painting as messily as possible….so much fun!
Tomorrow’s pear is red. Stay tuned.
SOLD © Pam Van Londen 2010, Valley Morning 11, 8×8 Acrylic on Claybord
Lately, I prefer acrylic over oil paint on the Claybord surface.
With it, I can still get a transparent underpainting that shows a lot of visual texture then pile up thicker paint on top to create a physical texture. $450 © Pam Van Londen 2007 Pismo Beach Garden acrylic on canvas on 24 x 36 x 1.5 canvas

PamVanLonden.etsy.com PaintedAbstractions.etsy.com December Etsy Window Exhibit Some of my larger works 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.
SOLD © Pam Van Londen 2010, Willamette River 28, 12×12 acrylic on gallery-edged canvas
This painting was commissioned for a couple that floated the Willamette River years ago.
The technique here uses an alizarin crimson underpainting to keep the palette bright. Once dry, I layered thick and thin swirling and flat layers to build depth.
I’ve painted the edges of the canvas so the image wraps around it, allowing more view from the sides and top and bottom.
SOLD © Pam Van Londen 2010, Park Trees 5, 8×8 oil on claybord SOLD © Pam Van Londen 2010, Park Trees 6, 8×8 oil on claybord
Trees, trees, beautiful trees! Every corner of Corvallis is filled with interesting trees and I want to paint them all.
SOLD © Pam Van Londen 2010, Park Trees 4, 8×8 oil on claybord
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.

I had some half-paintings sitting around so I finished them by adding crow silhouettes. These are made with oil paint and oil stick. Each comes framed in black.
I’m getting ready for my winter sale so must clean out unnecessary clutter from the studio. I have a stack of paintings I just can’t look at anymore, they will get a similar treatment.

It has cooled down here and is raining again so I could buckle down and paint!
Very few leaves have turned bright colors yet but that time is not far off. I can smell it in the air.

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.
