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.
Here are some new works I’ll have for sale…please come to booth 169 and take a closer look!
$64 © Pam Van Londen 2010, Nest of Prosperity 5.2, oil on 8×8-inch archival Claybord panel, unframed.
The original version of this painting was a ‘palette cleaner’…I used the paint left over from a previous painting. I’ve added more color now and like it so much better!
The colors are quite different from my regular palette. Some of you out there like earthier colors.
The original version of this painting was highlighted in the Gazette-Times article about the First Thursday Art Walk for Nov 4, 2010.
I am painting new and repainting some old works to prepare for the Corvallis Fall Festival, slated for Sept 28 and 29, 2013. I’ll be in booth 169 in the smaller circle. Please drop by and say hello. I will have framed and unframed daily paintings as well as some larger works.
$27 Purchase via Credit Card or PayPal © 2013 Pam Van Londen. Ball Bearings 4. 12×9-inch watercolor on archival paper. Comes unframed.
This fun and bright abstract watercolor was a joy to paint!
$27 Purchase via Credit Card or PayPal. © 2013 Pam Van Londen. Park Trees 14. Watercolor on 12x9x.25 on archival paper. Comes unframed
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.
$72 ~ Purchase via PayPal or credit card.
© 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.
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, Mary’s Peak 1.2, 24×36 Acrylic on canvas
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.
SOLD © Pam Van Londen 2012, Turner 4, 8×8 Oil on Clayboard
The view from the farm in Turner is always spectacular! I’ve painted this composition before but I like this version better.
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.
$50 © Pam Van Londen 2010, Willamette River 29 Oil on 8×8-inch archival Claybord panel, unframed. Purchase frame separately.
$35 © Pam Van Londen 2010, Willamette River 30, 7×5 oil on claybord
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.
SOLD © Pam Van Londen 2010, Canyon Dreams 31, 8×8 oil on claybord
This painting is very abstracted and was painted without a reference…I just like to feel the brush strokes and don’t think too much about where they go.
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.

$50 © Pam Van Londen 2010, Crow Upcycled 2, 8×8 oil on claybord
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.
If you have a Fall scene you need painted for home, office, or a gift, please contact me with the details. I have time to help you out!
SOLD © Pam Van Londen 2010, Willamette River 22, 8×8 oil on claybord
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:
