Coos Bay View

This is a view of Coos Bay from a hill across the bay from the city. The low tide was apparent with the muddy inlet which filled with water during the two hour painting session. I love how the mud patterns record the tidal ebb and flow from the ocean. The watery textures are fun to paint with watercolor on Yupo paper.

This little tree seemed to bend and stretch to catch the warm sunlight which filtered past the big trees.

Stone Bridge

This was painted plein air at Mingus Park in Coos Bay, Oregon. I have altered the stone supported culvert into a stone bridge, but kept the lovely landscaping with iris and skunk cabbage along the stream. The smoothness of the stream contrasts with all of the textures of the stone and plants.

I am sure the farmers had many practical concerns when building their barn and house, especially being in a river valley near the ocean, but the placement of these buildings has a lovely fit with the surrounding landscape.

The intricate shadows from the pine trees tangled among the washed out roots and flowed across the sand at Sunset Beach in Charleston, Oregon.

Part of Cape Arago’s rocky headland protrudes darkly against the silvery green ocean on this overcast day.
