What’s up


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

Mixed media art work in progress by Nikole Rae Peacock.

About Nikole Rae Peacock, mixed media artist.

Nature is my source of renewal and inspiration. My spirit feels most alive when I am outside painting,  working with wood, and landscaping. I thrive in breezes, birdsong, and cool grass under my bare feet. I love to create freely, playfully, and expressively ..releasing all rules and expectations …allowing the journey to unfold with curiosity and an open heart.” NRP

I have been an artist all my life, primarily showing and selling nature photography.  A few years ago I embraced a deep soul-calling and began painting on weathered wood salvaged from old barns and burn piles. — NRP

I am drawn to the natural texture and patterns of wood grain, which inspire seascapes, skies, beaches, and mountain ranges.  I combine various pieces of wood to create tranquil and inviting scenes…. each one entirely unique.

Barn boards, driftwood planks, and recycled wood pulled from a burn pile bleached by the sun, naturally outdoors. Artworks in the future for Nikole Rae Peacock.

Click on to watch a time lapse video of artworks in progress by Nikole.

Feels amazing to be painting on old weathered barn wood. These seascapes came alive. The new paintings are for the Seaside First Saturday Art Walk on Aug 7th!  Nikole Rae Peacock

I love creating my own textures, using molding paste, gel medium, sand, fiber and papers. I build layers upon layers into many of my paintings, enjoying the evolution and lessons learned as I go.  I listen to my creative spirit, I feel where my energy is naturally flowing and follow it.

When early layers disappear under fresh paint, they continue to add depth and richness, I have found to be a gentle practice of letting go, allowing change and discoveries to unfold… a true lesson for all of Life.

A final touch of salt water flicked onto the board and this painting is ready to bring vibrant color to someone’s life. It’s made with hefty boards that add power to its presence.

To make the nest, I started by creating the bases with metallic gold and green fusible paint.  I used a candle and then later a blowtorch to heat and bend thin glass “stringer” and layered them on the panel in the form of a nest.” CML

I added frit (crumbled glass) to add texture and depth.  Some of the nests have a couple of other colors of stringer or frit tucked in to represent other materials found by our feathered friends to pad their nests. The nests are tack fused to about 1350 degrees. The eggs are cut and shaped separately and full fused to 1490 degrees.” Carolyn Myers Lindberg 

Former Communications Coordinator at West Multnomah Soil and Water Conservation District, former KXL radio host, spouse of political-insider Mike Lindberg, and the daughter of Clay Myers (who served as both Oregon’s secretary of state and treasurer).

BE OUTSIDE WITH BIRD’S NESTS

NW friends agree to share a recent nesting backstory

I noticed the flowers moving in the hanging flower basket. Sure enough, a junco flew out. I grabbed my copy of Karen Roehm DeWitz’s book, Look at That Bird! (*****), she wrote about how juncos will sometimes make their nests in hanging flower baskets.

I peeked at the nest and found 3 naked birds curled up inside. 

A few days later…

I’m an empty nester already! That was fast.  I suspected something when I hadn’t been hearing or seeing the mom and pop around the nest since yesterday sometime. I wish I had been able to see the fledglings.

FLASH!  I think I found them.  I heard a bunch of “ticking” in a bush across the yard and saw a small brown bird on a branch, streaky breast and no hood yet, and it still had the yellow gape (thanks Karen) and the right kind of beak.  There were two adults hovering nearby so I think that’s my family!

UPDATED UPDATE:  I just saw one of the little babies again on the ground and this time the pop was feeding it. They still need some help from their parents.  –Pat Wollner

Karen Roehm DeWitz to PW:  They’ll be fed by the parents on the ground for a while yet. Enjoy the show!

PW:  Do they go back to the nest at night or sleep in the trees somewhere with the folks?

KRW: Once babies fledge, that’s usually it for the nest. It’s actually a super dangerous place for baby birds (they’re all together, and predators can watch mom and dad coming and going), so it’s best for them to get out ASAP. After that, the parents help them find a safe spot to roost at night. The babies may not be able to fly yet, so keep an eye on pets.

PW: They are actually flying, sort of. I suspect they came out of the nest sometime this morning and I didn’t find them until late this afternoon. They flit around in the low bushes and hop around on the ground. There was a juvenile Cooper’s hawk on the roof of my garage yesterday and usually the crows are all over the place so it is a dangerous place like you said.

Book Review:
This book would make a beautiful gift for someone who loves birds and nature, someone who is just starting out birdwatching or someone who already birdwatches but is interested in birds from the Pacific Northwest.


Although this book is aimed at the younger birdwatcher I think this book would be great for all ages! I certainly enjoyed it!

Sunflowers 16 x 20 watercolor, handmade paper, marbled Gelli, and gold leaf by Lieta Gratteri

Lieta Gratteri, a nursery and garden center manager for more than 30 years, often paints impressionistic art from NW fresh cut flowers she has cultivated and grown, as well as coastal wildlife.

Watercolor artist Lieta Gratteri in her home garden studio
Lieta Gratteri’s nursery 2021

“Central to creating a garden of interest is putting light-colored flowers in an area of shade and placing dark foliage plants in juxtaposition to gray-green textured plants.  Indeed, it is crucial to create a density of vegetation combined with a surprising bursts of color along a sight line or a path, and to develop moments where the visitor is fully immersed in the flowers, surrounding foliages, and a glimpse through the tree canopy above, so that the sky is barely visible” — D. Fairweather, Oregon master gardener

“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.

“Ocra Frolic” 24 x 24″ mixed media by Jan Rimerman

“Orca Friends”  24 x 24″ mixed media by Jan Rimerman

Q: What is the inspiration for The Orca Whale Collection?

A: The Orca Whale Collection is inspired by the love of these graceful animals.  Having a studio on Orcas Island for many years brought me up close and personal to these animals.  Watching them in the wild as they danced through the San Juan currents off the state of Washington is truly an experience. 

Observing the beautiful playfulness with each other as they breach, communicate and then disappear into the deep ocean is unforgettable.  There is an important Whale Museum on San Juan Island which gives a comprehensive explanation of the history of the orca pods and scientific information on how they operate as a species. It also brings to the surface the environmental issues that are harming the orca whale’s health and well being.

The Orca Whale painting series has five 24” x 24” paintings that all work together.  They would be impressive exhibited down a large stairway or in an office complex.  The collection reminds me how fabulous yet fragile these mammals are.  Note that the whales in the paintings are not whole.  Little by little these wonderful beings are disappearing.  Their food source of salmon is shrinking, pollution and plastics are invading their environment and whale watching is disrupting their daily lives.  My intent is to bring forth the magic of these creatures while reminding us that we can all do a small part to help protect our fellow beings.

Orca Sightings Through the Roof on Oregon Coast by Oregon Coast Beach Connection staff

 

Recent reports indicate a little Orca spy hopping, which is always spectacular.

The Transient Killer Whale Research Project actually identified the three Orcas in the various footage and photos spotted along the Oregon coast.  According to their lead scientist, Josh McInnes, they were the cataloged whales known as T049A2, T073, and T073D. They are known to be travel in coastal inland waters of Oregon, Washington, British Columbia, and southeast Alaska.

On May 18, 2021, orcas were reported at the Cove in Seaside, which is a rare sight.

Among the finds:

And, too, just this weekend, those in Gearhart got to watch grays and Orcas. First, a series of spouts from a couple of gray whales, and then there was an Orca surfacing behind them a way back. 

Even spotting gray whales – which are still migrating up the coast – is a patience game, so finding an Orca will be similar. It’s important to note gray whales have no dorsal fin (top fin), but killer whales do.

Q: What do Orcas symbolize?

A: The Orca symbolizes family, romance, longevity, harmony, travel, community and protection. Orcas travel in large family groups, working together to protect all members of their pod.

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.
