Tuscan Door. Original oil on linen. Michael Muldoon.

So perfect, so lovely, so right.  

A graduate of Seaside High, Michael Muldoon’s artistic journey followed a few years of teaching, coaching, West Point Military Academy, and then 30 years in sales and marketing with a major car company. He loved his job, but loves retirement even more, especially the time it gives him with family, friends, travel, and of course oil painting.

Bottom’s Up. Signed, matted and framed by nature photographer Neal Maine.

Where and when, you ask?

In the estuary, within steps of downtown Seaside a few days ago!

Neal focuses his imagery on exploring wildlife in the context of its habitat and is dedicated to working with coastal communities to protect wildlife habitat and its connectivity. A percentage of all photography sales are donated to North Coast Land Conservancy to help further this goal.

Save the dates and times.  During  the Seaside First Saturday Art Walks at Fairweather’s Neal Maine speaks promptly at 6 p.m. about the natural history of the North Coast!
