Another whimsical painting from Corvallis, Oregon. This is the local Arts Center featuring some of the surrounding art work including the bronze squirrel, the sculptures of a dancer and an alligator in a clever disguise.
We recently returned from our trip to Yosemite National Park. After 4 days in the valley we returned with hundreds of photos and a few sketches ready for painting subjects. We also discovered that free painting workshops are conducted in the valley all summer long.
Our first Vistas &Vineyards paint-out of the year was at Garlands Nursery in Corvallis. It was also the first really nice warm day of the year. This is the entrance to the nursery done in my "wonky" style. It was suggested that I get my eyes fixed!
The Disciples House is located across from the Arts Center and Central Park in Corvallis, Oregon. In its present incarnation it is used as a rooming house for OSU students. I have made several drawings and paintings of this building in the past. This twisted view is on a 16X20 canvas painted in acrylic. Before I added the color it looked very much like a Charles Birchfield.
