“THE LONG GREY LINE”  Dr. Dale J. Veith, fine art photographer

 

“When I think of, “March,” I cannot help but think of the many miles that my son and his fellow cadets spent marching during their tenure at West Point.

 

“The Cadet Chapel in March” by  Dr. Dale J. Veith, fine art photographer.

So, for my take on, “March,” I selected photos that were either taken at West Point during the month of March, or the photos are related to important marching events that occurred there.

 

 

For instance, the photo of the dark lines in the grass is titled, “THE LONG GREY LINE.” West Point Graduates are referred to as being part of “The Long Grey Line.” The lines in the lawn were worn into the lawn during an Acceptance Day parade when the cadets “accepted” into the Corps of Cadets.” Dr. Dale J. Veith

“Jumping in With Both Feet” USMC cadet in March by Dr. Dale J. Veith, fine art photographer.

 

“He who has a why to live for can bear almost any how.”  Friedrich Nietzsche

 

“An Oregon native, I am a clinical psychologist. I work in medical settings and my work is with people who have chronic medical conditions. The management pain is one of my passions.

My love of treating patients grew out of my personal experiences as a chronic pain patient. My pain started around 40 years ago through a combination of sports injuries, heavy physical labor, and motor vehicle crashes. Wonderful physicians, psychologists, and physical therapists helped me. Their examples inspired me to return to school so that I might find meaning through transforming my pain into an asset by helping others cope.

One of the most valuable lessons my rehab team taught me was the truth of the Nietzsche quote that introduces my bio. Having a sense of purpose, an awareness of what gives life meaning helps us tolerate the many challenges that life sends our way.

 

Having my photos in my office also allows me to share them. I use them to model for my clients how they might go about finding symbols that can perform the same function for them, symbols that remind them what gives their life’s meaning and purpose no matter what challenges confront them on their journey through life.  I hope they do that for all who see them.”  Dr. Dale J. Veith

“Waiting For Spring” , 8 x10  watercolor and acrylic on gessoed board.

Bev Drew Kindley, en plein air artist.

“Cool colors and bare branches suggest winter, but the warm earth hints at changing weather. The egret waits and makes the best of the present.”

 

Bev Drew Kindley

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

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

A: Fariweather House and Gallery has had the privilege to offer do painting demonstrations, titled Painting Seaside LIVE ™ during 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, and 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.
