Coquille River

1 Nov


This view is from Bandon’s South Jetty up the river toward Old Town. The tide was receding, exposing the mud flats.

Johnson Creek Mist

30 Oct


A light coastal mist shrouded the beach homes on the hill above the creek mouth and sent a diffused light to sparkle on the sand patterns left from the last high tide.

Sunny’s Chickens

18 Oct


Chickens are a common, yet delightful farm subject.  I like
this mosaic effect of looking through the fencing wire at 
the chickens as they check me out.

Hobby Horse Farm

15 Oct


This is that place on a farm where old junk is stored.  The 
plastic hobby horse glowed from the sunshine behind it as it 
galloped through the trees.  The window made a great 
counterpoint catching the reflections of the sky and trees.

Boardwalk Portal

1 Oct


The new floating boardwalk in Florence, Oregon, runs along 
the buildings' structural supports in Old Town.  It was the 
perfect vantage point to see under the old boardwalk into 
the watery rooms as the late afternoon sun found openings 
to blaze through.  The water, wood and light combined for 
an abstract and musical effect.   This is the second in the
“Boardwalk” series.

Sunny’s Donkey Pasture

13 Sep


The sunlight filtered through the foreground trees and 
glared onto the donkey pasture set in a beautiful little 
valley.  The donkeys wandered by to keep an eye on things
as I painted plein air.

Cat Cathedral

4 Sep
Cat_CathedralThis painting is named for two of the major rock formations
at Bandon, Oregon.  One is Cat Rock in the Face Rock Legend. 
The other is the large hollow Cathedral Rock with its 
various doors and windows.  The rocks are a continual 
source of subject matter for paintings as the ever changing
coastal light and ocean tides present them in new ways.
