Plein Air Painters of the South Coast

2 Jul

 

Cam 2014 Plein Air Painters Show

 

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

Cape Arago Lighthouse

Cape Arago’s unusual rocky land structure with its many coves, inlets and rock formations gives a painterly setting for the lighthouse.  A light fog bank approaches to color the scene.

Face Rock Fog

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.

Battery Point Lighthouse

This view of Crescent City’s lighthouse is from the north at the lookout at Brother Jonathan Park.  The mountains and strips of fog seem to surround Battery Point Island in a crescent, protecting the lighthouse as the ocean waves batter the rocks.

Shore Acres Fog

This was painted plein air at Shore Acres State Park.   The sun was illuminating the churning sea when a fog bank rolled rapidly toward me.  The horizon and the rock formations blurred and disappeared as the fog advanced.  I finished the painting with sunlight hitting the advancing fog.
