A few weeks ago I was painting at Finley Wildlife Refuge.  This is the second painting that was started at this location.  It is the Cabell Lodge which was built circa 1912 and is now used by the headquarters office for the Willamette Valley National Wildlife Refuge.

The little black cat I added for a touch more life as I didn’t see anyone else around and it seemed a shame that such a fine building didn’t have a little more activity.

This painting was partially created during the Open Studios tour. People were able to see it take form. I know those during the first weekend really wanted to see the final painting … so here it is!

Yes, it is an actual place in the Portland, Oregon area but unrecognizable it its incarnation here.

This is a study for a larger piece that I am working on right now.  Everyone who visited my studio today during Philomath Open Studios got to see the larger piece in the very first stages with the black gesso before the color goes on.  Tomorrow I will start to put in the transparent color and it will go through some very ugly stages.  I might have to put a sheet over it at this point!

Even though I was trying to hide the study so that I could work from it for the large one, I couldn’t help showing it to people as I explained my process.  It was sold, but I’ll ship it to her when I finish my large painting.

If you are in the area, today and next weekend (November 2 & 3rd, 2013) my studio will be open for the Philomath Open Studios Tour.

Other News:  I’m raising the prices of my small work.  The costs of the canvas have risen quite a bit.  So you probably have a few days before I get to all of the available work on sale, but don’t delay!

The sketch for the painting is below.  I decided I wanted it more to be about the house than the surrounding yard, car and trees.  It was the house that inspired me after all.

I also wanted to share a very special painting by Alice Boston who is 11 years old and lives in the UK.  She and her class have been studying my work and she sent me a photograph of the oil pastel painting she did of her dog “Storm.”  I love this painting with the expressive eyes and eyelashes and the wonderful use of color.  When I look at this artwork my heart immediately connects with the artist and her subject and I know that this adorable dog is loved.  I want to thank Alice for taking the time to send me a photo of the painting and for giving me permission to share it with you.
