OSU Sheep Barns (Oil Painting)

Wednesday (Sept 23) we went to the OSU Sheep Barns to do some painting. I arrived too late to paint but I did get a few shots from which I later completed this oil painting. It is 16X20 on canvas board.

Benton County Courthouse (Illustration)

This was my preliminary drawing which I decided to keep in its rough form because it creates an interesting effect. The courthouse is the most prominent structure in Corvallis.

Old World Deli Illustration

The Old World Deli is a well established (since 1977) Corvallis eatery which also includes the Oregon Trail Brewery. It has a European atmosphere complete with a brick floor and artwork on the walls and ceiling. I always wondered who belonged to those shoes in the loft window.

Deepwood Estate, Salem (Oil Painting)

Deepwood Estate is Salem Oregon was built in 1894. It is a Queen Anne style home surrounded by English gardens. In this painting I did distort the house somewhat in order not to violate some ancient copyright and because I like to do that anyway. This site was one of the Vistas & Vineyard locations this year.

Holstein House, Ink Drawing

On Wednesday we spent the morning painting and drawing the Holstein House and Gardens. I started this drawing on site and then worked on it at home. I am not yet sure how to treat the bushes in front, or leave them alone.

Water Street Market Illustration

I made this illustration for Harry & Annette, the owners of the fish market located in this building. Some people are accusing me of having far too much fun doing these illustrations.

Art In The Valley Illustration

Art In The Valley is a small cooperative gallery in Corvallis. This illustration shows what would happen if the Guggenheim Foundation acquired the gallery.

Whiteside Theatre Illustration

This is an illustration based on a previous sketch and watercolor painting. These illustration make really nice and bold posters and cards. I plan to make many more representing landmarks in the local region.
