“For me the light is every bit as important as the subject. I find inspiration in adverse weather, dense fog, intense rain, sub-zero blizzards, often well before dawn, past the twilight, and into the depths of night, at times where landscapes are light solely by the Moon. In these conditions I see colors and mood that few ever see or look for.

 

Artist Statement:

I’m drawn to settings that offer quiet contemplation. I seek subjects that will make a Fine Art Print that results in a destination, where  I am  able to immerse myself, where I’m free to wander, a place that revels its wonders anew, time and time again, and each viewing is my first. My Fine Art Photography is known for its quiet painterly style.”    Russell J. Young

Artist Statement:

Happiness is being outdoors absorbing nature– watching, waiting, sensing, and beginning to notice the poetry of the flow of shapes and colors, the grand design.  Next best are my many reminders and memories of the beauty seen and felt.  A strong wish to share observations leads to ideas, sketches, and choices. 

Sometimes I may feel watercolor best expresses the mood with its depth of color and independent ways of spontaneously creating shapes and textures suggesting nature.  

I have learned to “Let IT do IT”, meaning to allow and appreciate the ways of water with pigment while gently modifying to strengthen the emerging theme.  Watercolor on gesso-primed board or canvas gives more possibilities and can be varnished for protection.

Sometimes varied layers of acrylic paint as well can create intriguing depth and texture.  My paintings can be reminders to you of how refreshing it is to let intuition and experimenting be your guide.

Bev Drew Kindley

“I’m a native Oregonian who paints to understand, and enjoy the inspiration of unique moments of light and weather. My impressionistic works of art are to viewed as visual celebrations, connecting with light, color, form, texture and design. It’s my way of communicating with the world. My hope is to encourage appreciate and protection of our heritage and world. 

Learning to paint has been an on-going process since I first began drawing, with further education from Portland State University, Portland Community College and individual workshops…I have been always curious and fascinated with the power of the individual to create.

Exhibiting throughout Oregon, as well as, painting the coastal areas, has encouraged my productivity and experimenting with different medias– oil, gouache, watercolor, pastel and others.

I have taught painting classes and worked in the art business for quite some time. At present, my greater enthusiasm is painting “en plein air”, a French term, meaning to paint working outdoors, and capturing the light without a short time frame because of the immediacy of the experience, as well as, the abundance of visual information along with the possibility of sudden breakthroughs in methods due to improvising.

All of my recent work begins with the experience of the real location, later finished in the studio, oftentimes with the aid of sketches and photos of the location.”  

Education:

Portland State University, degrees in Art and Philosophy
Portland Community College, degree in Art
Independent studies and workshops, including Al Brouilette

2019

Spring Downtown Wine Walk

Fall Downtown Wine Walk

Wine Walks are when Seaside opens its doors – and its bottles – to welcome wine enthusiasts during two wine tasting events. More than twenty participating wineries sell unopened bottles, allowing visitors to take home their favorite new find. Most of the wineries charge a small tasting fee, making it an inexpensive way to experience new wines and also see what downtown Seaside has to offer. The event also includes live music in several venues, complimentary appetizers, and a prize drawing for future Wine Walks.

Pastel by Kathy Moberg

 

 

What a journey it has been! I have painted for fifty years now and each painting is still a new adventure…a mystery to be solved. My work evolves in layers of texture and color. Sometimes I paint from life or from a series of sketches or photos letting my imagination take hold from there.

A specific style is not something I worked to develop but came quite naturally. I have a light touch and rather loose stroke. My mantra is, ‘Every stroke affects every other stroke, every line affects every other line, every color affects every other color’. I approach painting from a more abstract, broader perspective, and work the entire canvas at once rather than small areas at a time. The first layer is usually painted in watercolor using the compliment in the following layers of pastel, often letting the watercolor show through to build continuity throughout the work.

 

One of my favorite quotes by Marc Chagall is “If I create from the heart everything works: if from the head, almost nothing works.”

Since the mid 80’s I have been painting with a community of women artists. Some women have left our group, and others have continued through the years, opening their arms and hearts to newcomers. In turn, they instill new and fresh ideas. We share our lives, our hopes, our aspirations…and our art. Painting connects us. These women sustain my art. My inspiration is enhanced by their physical presence…coming together to paint. Their mentoring spirit, their tenacity and perseverance gives me the boost I need to press on. This spiritual presence carries me through the slumps and the moments of self-doubt.

These women create a momentum for me. They offer themselves to the nurturing of art, and in so doing enrich my life.   Kathy Moberg

Adding or embedding new materials to the surface creates surprise, and occasionally, deeper interpretation and understanding of the subject.” –Agnes Field
