Willamette River commission

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.

Silver Creek Falls

Crows on the Beach 7

SOLD © Pam Van Londen 2010, Crows at the Beach 7, 8×8 oil on clayboard I’ve sold the other two of this composition, so felt compelled to paint it again. I find painting ripples a challenge to render and they are quite different every time I do them. When painted on Claybord, it is tougher […]
