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 approached to color the scene.

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.

Choshi Bridges
Choshi Bridges
This beautifully designed oriental garden is in Mingus Park in Coos Bay, Oregon. I was able to paint there in the spring when the trees were blossoming and set off the landscaping perfectly. The Japanese Garden was created to honor Coos Bay's sister city of Choshi, Japan. These foot bridges connect the paths which go around Mingus Lake. The area has a very calming effect.

Coquille Point Sunset
Coquille Point Sunset
Sometimes things just line up. Here we have sea stack rock formations, setting sun, clouds, ocean waves and mist all in the right place. As I spend many evenings walking on the beach, I am gaining some appreciation for those ancient people who built Stonehenge. This was painted from reference photos that were taken October 1st. Now in December, the sun is setting much to the left, or more south. I am finding that soft pastels work well for capturing the blues, yellows and oranges of a sunset without mixing and making the sky green and gray.

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

Elephant Sky
Elephant Sky
Coquille Point in Bandon is a great place to view Elephant Rock and the Pacific, especially at sunset. The low clouds block and disperse the sunset colors across the water, rocks and wet beach creating a scene that begs to be painted.

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

Face Rock Dream
Face Rock Dream
The clouds and setting sun frame Face Rock as if she were dreaming while reclining in the ocean.

Face Rock Fog
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 the 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.

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

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.

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. This painting can be viewed and purchased at the Second Street Gallery, Bandon, Oregon.

12" x 9", matted and framed.

Johnson Creek Mist
Johnson Creek Mist
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.

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

Kitten Sunset

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.

Seven Devils Cliff
Seven Devils Cliff
This was painted plein air at the cliff at Seven Devils State Recreation Site. The gorse on the cliff was striking with its yellow blooms even in the slight ocean haze. Painting plein air gives me a chance to feel the atmosphere as it works its way into the painting.

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

Sunny
Sunny's Chickens
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.

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