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.

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.
