Spring has sprung... winter is officially over!
Covid appears to be gone and social calendars are filling up. It's been a long three years and I am sure many of you, as I, have grown...contemplated, redirected priorities, and explored new possibilities.
Throughout it all, I admit that my painting has been a stabilizing force... (aka a new obsession) that took hold of me late last year: working with acrylic paints on canvas. Oregon landscapes, in particular...places I hiked and enjoyed, I now bring into my studio to paint to enjoy again! Many of you who have been following me already know I take the summers off to hike and kayak Oregon's awesome trails and waterways. Camera handy, I capture whatever moves me and interpret this experience through my art.
The winter months I paint. These past several months I have created over 25 paintings of Oregon landscapes exploring specific ideas or techniques in smaller sizes and placed into contemporary floating frames. The end of April I will be introducing them in exhibit and for sale at the Lakewood Center for the Arts in Lake Oswego. The included images are examples of back lighting, perspective, color and reflections.
