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. © 2013 Pam Van Londen. Park Trees 14. Watercolor on 12x9x.25 on archival paper. Comes unframed $27 Purchase via Credit Card or PayPal.
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.

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. SOLD Coastal Drama Cannon Beach. © Pam Van Londen 2013. Oil on 8×8-inch Claybord panel. Unframed.
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.

I’m spending a day at Greg Sarris’ home in Sonoma County, California, with friends. His garden that wraps around the home is spectacular with large lavenders, olive and bay trees, a kidney pool, lizards, and many native plants.
We listened to the coyotes and owls last night and hear the bees buzzing as they spend their day in the lavender.

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.
$125 © Pam Van Londen 2010, Valley Morning 8, 17×13 watercolor $64 © Pam Van Londen 2010, Valley Morning 9, 8×8 watercolor
Last summer, I gathered with friends and students to paint plein air and these two sketches were started then. I finished them last month with a bit of acrylic and iridescent watercolor.

I’ve submitted this watercolor painting to the auction, which ended.
Last week I was commissioned to paint a previous plein air daily painting onto a larger panel. We settled 40×30 inches:
Columbia River Gorge Beacon Rock from Rooster Rock 2
Then I could not stop…I had to paint it again, only 48×48. Which one will they choose?
Columbia River Gorge Beacon Rock from Rooster Rock 3 Woo Hoo! I sold 9 paintings!!!!
I’ll be selling my original 8×8 daily paintings at Corvallis Fall Festival on Sept 25 from 10:00am to 6:00pm and Sept 26 from 10:00am to 5:00pm at Central Park.
Stop by my booth (#168) to view my new work. Older work will be

Our family tradition is to hike to a waterfall, ford the Oneonta slot canyon, and sit in the mud at Rooster Rock on the Columbia Gorge.
This year we hiked to Ponytail and Horsetail falls again, climbed over the logjam (the kids did, while I painted), and wade in the mighty river (the kids did, while I painted).
SOLD © Pam Van Londen 2010, Columbia Gorge Rooster Rock Flowers, 8×8 oil on claybord
My granddaughter saw her first waterfalls, hiked in her new boots, and her favorite…got up to her waist in the river and muddied-up her toes.
This photo expresses her joy!
SOLD © Pam Van Londen 2010, Mary’s Peak 8, 8×8 oil on claybord
I enjoyed another evening of painting outdoors last night. We settled into some property south of Corvallis where we could view the sun setting over Mary’s Peak.
The wheat fields provided a gold texture against the misty blue backdrop of hills and mountains.
Join the group on Thursday for just $15. Contact

It was class outdoors again last evening. We painted at the Crystal Lake Boat Landing in Corvallis. Due to the heat of the day, many folks were boating, rafting, mud-soaking, and biking. The atmosphere was jubilant.
My favorite scene was the harmonica player conoeing with two dogs. He floated down river then appeared again later; he must have done the whole trip again! The lighting and the music seemed to transport me back 200 years and I expected Tom Sawyer to come strolling by.
SOLD © Pam Van Londen 2010, Sheep Grazing 1, 8×8 oil on claybord
After another evening of peaceful painting out of doors, I have this panel to show. Painting sheep so small was not as easy as I expected, so I’ll be practicing more.
Oregonians are so lucky to have such beautiful country so close at hand. Just a minute’s drive and we are out into the fresh air and rural settings.
SOLD © Pam Van Londen 2010, Denise’s Strawberries, 8×8 oil on claybord
It is a joy to sit outside and paint with your girlfriends. Nobody judges and we enjoy catching up on family happenings.
Denise and her husband have quite a garden in the middle of town, along with chickens and dogs.
The strawberries are excellent to eat and brightly colored for painting.
SOLD © Pam Van Londen 2009, Mt Tabor Rhodies, 8x8x1 on oil on claybord MISSING…have you seen it? © Pam Van Londen 2009, Mt Tabor View 3, 4x12x.5 on oil on claybord
Instead of showing work at the
Corvallis Art guild’s 48th Annual Clothesline Sale*, I opted to paint plein air at the Mt Tabor Centennial Celebration in Portland.
I had a lovely time showing my work to the neighborhood, painting with other artists, and partaking of the parades, concerts, and people/dog/kid watching.
I sold my first plein air piece of the weekend (I forgot to take a photo of it) from the plein air exhibit, and 2 studio pieces from my booth.
Here are my second and third plein air works.
* Not sure who gave the Gazette-Times the names of exhibitors. I’m thrilled for the publicity; but I was not scheduled to be there!
