Two Oil Paintings from Silver Falls State Park, Oregon

These 12X16 paintings were started during our recent paint out at Silver Falls which is near Silverton.  The first is the Lodge and the second is a bridge near South Falls.

Out To Pasture - 16X20 Oil Painting

I have always been interested in one of the old tractors at the Detering Nursery named "Little Putt-Putt".  This is my latest painting featuring this tractor.  I call it "Out to Pasture".

I just completed a second Ford Wonkster painting, this time a frontal view.  I plan to show both at the August 6 Clothesline Sale of Art in Corvallis on the Courthouse Lawn.

Paintings from the Dancing Oaks Nursery

The first painting is a 9X12 acrylic of two oaks dancing.   The second one is an ink/watercolor drawing of a group of Lilium "Satisfacion" in my sketchbook.

Ford Wonkster - 20X24 Oil Painting

I was at the Philomath car show last week and saw this really nice 1929 Ford Roadster.  I always wanted one of these.  So I now have the next best thing, and it needs no maintenance or insurance, maybe just some more oil.

Beazell Memorial Forest-12X16 Acrylic

Another outing with Vistas & Vineyards.  This was after a lesson on perspective.  This is spherical perspective (or just wonky).

Another view of Mirror Lake in Yosemite.  It is a 9X12 oil painting completed almost entirely with a painting knife.

Halsey Paper Mill - Two Views

The Halsey Paper Mill is the last active paper mill in Oregon.  We recently visited a site near the mill for a paint-out.  I first made a semi-realistic painting in acrylic and subsequently a distorted ("Wonky") version in oil.  Reality is obviously highly overrated.
