Bandon Sunset 2
Bandon Sunset 2
When the clouds lift, Bandon sunsets always draw a crowd. The ocean's reflective qualities intensifies the sunset colors and the rock formations offer interesting shapes for the colors to stream around. This is the second in the Bandon Sunset series with two big rock formations. This painting can be viewed at the Southern Coos Hospital Clinic in Bandon, Oregon.

18" x 12", matted and framed to 24" x 18" in a brown 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. This painting can be viewed at the Southern Coos Hospital Clinic in Bandon, Oregon.

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

Fog Horn
Fog Horn
This is a favorite spot on the beach. We usually walk this far and then sit here and watch the huge waves, before turning around and walking back. The waves seem bigger and more aggressive here. I like that you can look across the waves toward the jetty and fog horn and see the undulating shapes of the waves. This painting can be viewed at the Southern Coos Hospital Clinic in Bandon, Oregon.

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

Cloud Reflections
Cloud Reflections
The retreating tide left a soft mirror surface to reflect the evening clouds.

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.

Sea Foam
Sea Foam
Sometimes the sea churns up this soft foam which was a delight to paint with the hazy evening sun for lighting. The darker Belgian Mist Wallis paper gives a nice ground for the colors of the rock and sand. This painting can be viewed at the Southern Coos Hospital Clinic in Bandon, Oregon.

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

Bandon Inlet
Bandon Inlet
The seawater rushed through the rocks beside Elephant Rock at low tide, capturing the long strands of exposed kelp and waving them around in the water. I love the way the water swells against the stone walls and is lower in the center of the surf. Also fascinating is how the water seems to change color as it comes in. This painting can be viewed at the Southern Coos Hospital Clinic in Bandon, Oregon.

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

Sea Stacks
Sea Stacks
This view is from south of Face Rock looking toward Cathedral Rock. The incoming waves brought white froth lines which helped compose this panting of some of Bandon Beach's sea stacks. This painting can be viewed at the Southern Coos Hospital Clinic in Bandon, Oregon.

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