Gray Pond
Gray Pond
This is the same oriental pond as in “Shore Acres Pond,” but painted in the fall rather than the spring and on a foggy day this time. The pond is like a good sculpture, pleasant to view from all angles. This painting focuses on the grayed lavenders and greens to capture the mood of the day.

18" x 12", matted and framed to 24" x 18" in a black wood frame.

Cat Cathedral
Cat Cathedral
This painting is named for two of the major rock formations at Bandon, Oregon. One is the 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.

18" x 12", matted and framed to 24" x 18" in a black wood frame.

Hobby Horse Farm
Hobby Horse Farm
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.

12" x 16", framed in a wood plein air frame.

Jetty Surge
Jetty Surge
The king tide surged through the mouth of the Coquille river for an up close look at wave action.

12" x 9", matted and framed.

Lighthouse Dunes
Lighthouse Dunes
The Coquille lighthouse in Bandon, Oregon, was painted en plein air. Soft pastels were a great medium for quickly capturing the colors and feel of the day. The grassy dunes blocked some of the wind along the path leading to the lighthouse and the river beyond. The west side of the lighthouse was lit up from the sun glinting off the ocean.

9" x 12", matted and framed to 16" x 20" in a wood frame.

King Tide
King Tide
The dramatic king tide covers the beach and crashes against the rocks and cliff at Coquille Point in Bandon. This painting, originally painted in 2016, was reworked to decrease the size of the foreground rock and make the incoming wave more dramatic. I like working in media that allow me to rework a painting, sometimes years later, to bring it to a better finish. Here, the UART sanded paper was very receptive to brushing off color and adding more layers of soft pastel.

16" x 22", matted and framed to 22" x 28" in a wood frame.

Simpson Beach
Simpson Beach
The colors of the the sea 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.

24" x 18", matted and framed to 30" x 24" in a black wood frame.

Whiskey Run
Whiskey Run
The road, Whiskey Run, ends on this Oregon beach that is approved for vehicles. Mud tracks curved through the newly washed-in logs, some of which had to be cut to make way for the cars. Freshly sawn logs created some nice orange color to contrast with the browns and blues of the beach.

18" x 24", matted and framed to 24" x 30" in a wood frame.

Yellow Pond Lily
Yellow Pond Lily
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.

18" x 12", matted and framed to 24" x 18" in a black wood frame.
