Devil’s Kitchen

This view of Devil’s Kitchen and Crooked Creek is a favorite plein air painting spot as it is sheltered from the wind.

Plein Air Painters of the South Coast

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.

Simpson Beach

2 Sep


The colors at Simpson Beach seem more intense than at other nearby Oregon beaches.  The concretions and flat stones that extend out into the bay are covered with bright green seaweed.  The pale pink sand is made mostly of tiny smooth sea shell pieces.  Then, the high tide sends a transparent wash over this wonderful place swirling the colors into a lovely painting.
