It been an unusually cold winter here in Oregon. I know everyone laughs about us panicking at the first snowflake, but these ice storms are no joke! Unfortunately they have impacted several great art shows, including the annual BIG 500 fundraiser for the Oregon Food Bank. There was still a great turnout for the opening day, but by the end of the show many lovely pieces were still left undiscovered, including some of mine below.
Most of these painting were started while I was away on a residency retreat in Hawaii, so you’ll see even more tropical influences than usual. (And yes, I do see the irony in that.) I experimented with a loose, abstracted style as well as watercolor, encaustic, oil and cold wax in various combinations for different looks. It was very exciting!
In the spirit of the fundraiser I’m offering these 8 x 8 inch unframed paintings on wood panel (with a hanger attached) at the original show price of just $40 each through the end of March, with 25% of each purchase going directly to the food bank. At these prices you can see why this is such a popular show — and only happens once a year!
Please contact me with the image number(s) of the paintings you’d like to purchase. Shipping is not included in the price but if you send me your zip code I’ll be happy to get you a shipping quote. Brighten up your life with art and help feed the hungry at the same time!
