Painting Seaside LIVE ™


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.

Plein Air LIVE on Camano Island with Melissa Jander

 
 
I have been painting a lot this year, as many of us artists have been doing with our extra time at home. When I paint it’s like traveling to another place, no matter the subject. It’s the same way when I’m in the garden tending to the flowers. Time seems to disappear and it’s simply delightful.”    Melissa Jander

Melissa Jander is an artist working out of her studio on Camano Island in the San Juan area of Seattle area, and was born in Portland, OR and raised in the Pacific Northwest. Melissa began painting and creating as far back as she can remember, but practicality dictated another career path.

After working in the business world as a graphic designer and in other professional marketing roles, she began seriously pursuing her art in 2001, working in oils on canvas.

She joined local art groups and participated in juried group and solo shows, art fairs, and artist-in-action demos. Current art associations include Oil Painters of America, Evergreen Association of Fine Arts, Plein Aire Washington Artists, and Northwest Artists in Action.

“Art life these days with my studio supervisor, Franz.” –Melissa

“Camano Garden Tulips”  12 x 9 oil by Melissa Jander

The garden has given me lots of flowers for painting and for sharing with others in the community. The joy on someone’s face when you hand them a bouquet is one of my favorite things. I think that’s why I include so many flowers in my work; it’s an offering of a bouquet that will never fade. –-MJ
 

“Favorite Things” 12 x 16 oil by Melissa Jander

I try to capture the luminescence of the petals and the emotion of light bouncing in and around the objects, the reflections of patterns off of different types of surfaces of crystal and silver, multiplying the abundance of joy within the painting.”   MJ

“Time for Brunch” 16 x 20 oil by Melissa Jander

These new paintings for 2021 come to you with love and care. I wish you all many blessings and good health!”  MJ
 

“Lilacs in Silver Pitcher” 14 x 11 oil by Melissa Jander

“Promises” 12 x 9 oil by Melissa Jander

I try to be as expressive with paint and color as possible, while still staying fairly representational. I love to offer the viewer an opportunity to engage a familiar subject while still leaving room to wander, play and fill in the gaps of interpretation. Painting this way gives me such joy, and I’m delighted to share.”  — MJ

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…

“Grace helps us do more than we can on our own.

Nature brings truths that we could never discover without the help of grace.”  —FH&G

An iridescent person does this to you because they see what others don’t combined with an ability, sometimes even by doing nothing but being themselves, to understand what you are going through.

“Iridescent Flow” pen and ink with watercolor by Vanessa K. Stokes

In Roman mythology, Flora symbolized nature, flowers and fertility. Fauna symbolized the goddess of animals, wildlife, and spring. Hence the word “Fauna” designates all animal life.

“Watersong”  acrylic 30 x 48 by Toni Avery

Toni Avery is an artist working primarily in the Pacific Northwest. Her images reflect the range and diversity of the surrounding landscapes from the forests, beaches, and surrounding land of the Willamette Valley.

After receiving her art degree from Marylhurst University, Toni worked as a design consultant but was never far from her love of painting and photography.

Today she uses a number of her photographs as subject matter for paintings, referring to them only as “points of departure”, but it is her vision that completes a painting.

Toni’s artwork can be seen in many public collections,  such as Kaiser Permanente’s “Healing Artwork Collection,” on display at the Westside Medical Centers in Hillsboro and Beaverton, Oregon, and is also featured in their  publication, “Tranquil Relief Through Nature.”

January 2021 work in progress at the studio of Tedd Chilless

“Blooms in Sunlight” oil on linen 

 

“I treat painting flowers more like a portrait offering evidence of intimacy of the individual blooms.  My perceptions are realistic studies.”  TC

Just now hand delivered to the Fairweather Gallery by artist Tedd Chilless

“We need colorful works and flowers in our lives.”

Just in from Tedd Chilless.
“Alstroemeria” oil on linen 

The cut flower of all cut flowers, often called Lily-of-the-Incas, is a flower in almost all bouquets.

“I am a Contemporary Realistic Painter of Flowers and Landscapes.”  TC

 

 

And, so, for 2021 Tedd Chilless created new impasto oils using fine tools of his trade, a collection of palette knives.

 

 

 

Fresh Blooms” impasto oil painting by Tedd Chilless

Just in for 2021

 

“Iris” impasto oil painting by Tedd Chilless

Just in for 2021

Impasto painting is about using palette knives to press with a certain amount of paint thickness and texture. Each stroke is done in one confident and controlled movement. 

 

 

I did my architectural internship and received my Architect’s license in the Northwest. In addition, I received a Ford Foundation Fellowship. While on this fellowship I lived and studied in Washington D.C., New York City, and Boston where I studied painting.

I established my architectural firm in Portland, OR and as computers took over my architectural practice I experienced what I called ‘graphite withdrawal’.

It was a major change to go from sketching eight hours a day for twenty years to moving only a mouse. I felt the need to express my artistic skills and began painting in earnest. 

The transition from architecture to painting has been easy since the knowledge of form and composition are similar in both. I now paint full time.

I serve as an Oregon State Ambassador and am an Active Member of the Oregon Society of Artists.  —Tedd Chilless

 

 

Take a Note! Artist Tedd Chilless painting LIVE at Fairweather Gallery during the winter quarter of 2020. He is planning on more Painting Seaside LIVE ™ events Fairweather during the spring quarter of 2021, as well.

Q: What is a Painting Seaside LIVE ™ episode, you ask?

A: Fariweather House and Gallery has had the privilege to offer painting demonstrations, titled Painting Seaside LIVE ™ during most of the Seaside First Saturday Art Walks. Resident artists have been very generous, as it is a compliment to be asked, and they always immediately respond with an enthusiastic, “yes” when asked to perform a painting episode.

 

“Painting is a passion. The Painting Seaside LIVE ™ process gives the artists the chance to share this passion with the onlookers. Artists enjoy the opportunity being authentic in what they are experiencing. Surely, the LIVE episodes, sponsored by Fairweather House and Gallery, are, truly, one of the ways that artists “live the process” and help patrons grow to appreciate art, as well.” D. Fairweather, gallerist.

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 will offer an artist talk during the opening reception on March 2 at Fairweather’s

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
