It was too windy to sit and paint, so my camera studied the pond lily leaves as they danced on the dark water. Later, the soft pastels translated the wind and light on the water lilies. This painting can be viewed and purchased at the Southern Coos Hospital’s show, “Flora and Fauna of the Coquille Watershed” April 9 until June 26, 2015. The reception is April 12, 2015 from 1:00-3:00 pm at the Southern Coos Hospital and Health Center, 900 11th Street SE, Bandon, Oregon.
Thanks to the gallery and all of you who voted for me last May at the Art by the Sea Miniature and Small Works show. As the People’s Choice, 15 of my watercolors and pastels will be on display in the Art by the Sea Gallery and Studio during March and April. I hope to see you at the reception Saturday. I will be teaching a watercolor on Yupo paper class in conjunction with the show. The class will be Saturday, March 20 from 1-4:00 pm. Contact the gallery for more information at 541-347-5355. The Gallery is located at 175 Second Street SE, Bandon, Oregon, 97411.

CAM BIENNIAL 2014
Continuing the tradition of supporting contemporary Oregon artists, Coos Art
Museum opens its galleries to new works by artists from around the state.
The CAM Biennial provides Oregon artists an opportunity to exhibit their works
within an art museum setting without the extensive jurying process. The
artworks exhibited in the CAM Biennial range from paintings to photography,
ceramics to glass, textiles to metals and more. Exhibition funded in part by a
grant from Trust Management Services, LLC
I have three paintings showing in the Coos Art Museum’s “Plein Air Painters of the South Coast” in the Clare Wehrle Community Gallery. This is a great opportunity for me to display my art with my painting buddies as well as regional artists that I have yet to meet. The wonderful scenery and near perfect weather of the south coast of Oregon have made for a high concentration of very talented plein air artists. Coos Art Museum is very encouraging to local artists by providing this wonderfully professional space and promoting our work.
The Coos Art Museum is located at 235 Anderson Avenue, Coos Bay, Oregon, 97420. coosart.org
“LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT” Art works to celebrate the joys of life
Southern Coos Hospital & Health Center —Sunday April 13th – June 30. 2014
It is amazing how little wisps of fog can change a scene by hiding huge structures and throwing light and color around. As we were walking Bandon’s beach at sunset, the fog moved across the Kittens and then Face Rock, changing the colors of the sunset and beach reflections. The feeding gulls remained a constant, anchoring the scene.
