Oregon Myrtle Wood artisan bowl with azul filler embedded to accent the knot and grain by Mike Brown. 

Myrtlewood grows only along the Pacific Coast in Oregon, to San Diego and Klamath mountains and along the west slope of the Sierra Nevada. Wood artist Mike Brown  forages for Myrtlewood from trees downed by winter storms.

Surprisingly, these nests take a considerable amount of time to create. I first cut a lot of tiny strips of glass of varying lengths and colors, assembled them to look like twigs and fired them in my kiln.  Then the “twigs” were layered flat to resemble how a bird might have built its nest.  The assemblage is fired again to meld all the “twigs” together.  Then, finally, the entire nest is fired for the third time in a mold to create the bowl shape of the nest. It was a long process but fun to see the nests take shape!  In fused glass, you can’t ever get a completely round shape since fusing is done on a flat kiln shelf.  So, I spent some time trying different elements to take the place of nest eggs and decided on tumbled agate stones, or chalcedony.  I think they complement the glass nests. –-Carolyn Myers Lindberg

 

“Sandpipers” watercolor by Paul Brent

At Seaside estuary along the Necanciium River, flocks of many thousands of the Western sandpipers can be sighted swirling around over shallow water, landing to feed, before resuming migration. Their tightly coordinated escape flights are breathtaking to observe.

“Rendezvous” mixed media fresco painting on panel by Agnes Field 32″ x 32.5″

Q: What is mixed media fresco painting?

A: Three coats of plaster, sand, and marble dust are troweled onto a surface. A final smooth coat of plaster is added onto as much of the surface as can be painted in one session. The boundaries are confined carefully along contour lines, so that the edges of each successive section of fresh plastering are imperceptible. Agnes Field

And, too, brilliantly illuminating her talent,  Agnes Field created a YouTube video from her workspace to participate in the revised Astoria Open Studio Tours in 2021.  View her art on line this Saturday and Sunday, July 24 and 25/ 11-5:pm.

Paul Brent will share with Art Walk patrons and guests his newest public art project, a mural for Panama City,  that was inspired by a coastal pelican. 

Paul Brent painting LIVE

Paul Brent is an artist whose work has become internationally known to represent the coastal lifestyle.

From his watercolors to his recent oil paintings he captures nature in its best and most idyllic form.

While being best known for his beach subjects, he has painted landscapes that are equally indicative of his talent to recreate all aspects of nature.

He especially enjoys painting local scenes and beachscapes that he views near his two home studios in Panama City, Florida and Seaside, Oregon.

From October through May, Paul Brent returns to Florida to create work in his studio, contributing time to the local cultural arts community, and participating in the art education program in the schools. Most recently, Paul completed his Pelican mural for Panama City in Florida in May, 2021.

PANAMA CITY — The “Welcome Wall” mural project in downtown Panama City is complete. 

Quite often, people will drop by. They’re driving by and see the murals going up, so they’ll stop and give us a big thumbs-up and make a lot of positive comments,” artist Paul Brent said.

All of the artists commissioned to paint portions of the wall are recognized “fixtures of the arts community” in Bay County, according to Bay Arts Alliance (BAA) — many have won the long-running Bay Annual competition hosted at the Panama City Center for the Arts.


Panama City mural program includes Brent…
