$64 purchase with credit card or PayPal © 2013 Pam Van Londen. Willamette River 31. 8x10x1.5-inch oil on gallery-edged archival Claybord. No frame needed
My favorite summer past-time is sitting next to a river to paint. While waiting for a kid practicing soccer at the field next to the river, it is easy for me to get set up and just do it!
I’ve painted at this spot many times and never tire of its beauty. The colors reflecting in the water are bright and inviting.
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.

© 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.

© 2013 Pam Van Londen. Mary’s Peak 9. Acrylic on 12×12-inch Gallery-Edged Canvas
I’ve been staring at this one on the wall for months trying to decide what to do. I added a bit of orange to the foreground and now I’m happy with it.
The iridescent paint shimmers in the light and even in low light it glows a bit.
Because the image is painted around the edges, it does not need a frame.
$64. © Pam Van Londen 2013. Willamette River 30, acrylic on 8×8-inch panel, unframed, plein air. Purchase via PayPal with a credit card
I waited out the rain to get painting, only to get wet anyway! The painting may have a bit of rain on it, too. Clackamette park is a favorite spot in the city to hang out along the shore to fish, wander, paint, etc.

I enjoyed painting downtown on the waterfront today. Everyone was in a jolly mood while they biked/walked by with their dogs and kids.
Since it was warm outside, I worked in oils. These two should be dry in a week or so.
Other artisans have listed my work on their Etsy Treasuries this month.
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.
As Corvallis residents walk around downtown during their work day or for holiday shopping, please stop and look at the local Etsy.com team’s window exhibit.
We have clothing, jewelry, prints, original visual art, and other hand-crafted goods on display and for sale on line at Etsy.com.
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.

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:

It was a glorious day in the park this morning. The farmer’s market has grown and so have the crowds.
I tried some Tayberries, which are like long, large raspberries. Their taste was like another flavor I’ve experienced but could not remember what. I’ll have to try them again next weekend.

A birds-eye view of our beloved river: the Willamette.
Flying over provides a different perspective about our home; we see where the river has been improved, where the farms grow our food, how cities are sprawling, and where the forests have disappeared.
It can be shocking.
I’m working on some larger canvases this week (because they have been sitting here for years).
$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.
