Beacon Rock sits in the middle of the Columbia River © 2010 Pam Van Londen. Purchase at Etsy.

This large abstract landscape painting of Oregon and Washington’s famed Columbia Gorge includes a view of Beacon Rock as seen from Roster Rock State Park. It is based on a plein air oil painting completed in 2007.

Columbia River: Beacon Rock from Rooster Rock. Sold.

The technique uses a red-orange underpainting with loose brushstrokes on top. In some areas, iridescent pearl paint is added to remind viewers of the shiny reflections on the water and just-rained-on foliage, sand, and rocks and the glare of the sun as you drive past this unique vista.

The large 4-foot square format is suitable for hanging on a tall and wide wall where the viewing distance is 10 feet or more. Consider it for your dining room, entry hallway, or office foyer.

The surface is acrylic paint that wraps around the edges. The sturdy support is ready to hang with wire and two hooks. The price is $800 and includes shipping to anywhere inside of Oregon. Shipping to other states or countries is at the buyer’s discretion. Contact me to rent this painting for $100 per month.

Purchase via Etsy with PayPal, Visa, Mastercard, or American Express.

Other small and large fine art paintings are available on Etsy, but if you’d like to view them in person, contact me to set an appointment.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Here’s another plein air painting from Clackamette Park. I’m adding this one and the previous painting to the Daily Paintworks “Different Ways” challenge.

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.

Coastal Drama Cannon Beach

This new painting is a remake of an older painting, which I could not stand to look at anymore. This version has more drama and is much more fun to look at. The sand from the original plein air painting session is still visible, adding an interesting texture.

Coastal Drama 3

A few years ago I did some plein air painting at Cannon Beach. Most of those panels sold. One did not, so I’ve revised it…and I like it so much better.

Here is the revision. The paint ought to be dry during the second week of May 2013.

The Oregon Coast has several areas where birds thrive on sand dunes (until we disturb them with our toys). Walking up to the top of the dunes lets you see far up and down the scenic coastline.

In Oregon, due to our varying minute-to-minute weather changes, our vistas are spectacular most of the time. Here is a scene from near the Philomath area off highway 34.

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.

Last month I camped at Cape Kiwanda with family and had the chance to paint the dunes. Today I finished up the details.

I’ve exaggerated the color and pattern just for fun! The wind blew those two days of painting, so you’ll notice a bit of sand in the paint.

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.

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.
