Blush

In the days of late winter mist

Alders

Shy in their beauty  

Blush

the whisper of spring.   Russell J. Young

 

 

“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

“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

“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

Artist Mike Mason is holding “Allium onion. “
 The Allium or “onion blossom,” grows from a single bulb. Representing: unity, humility, and patience it kindly rules over these ancient ferns. Ferns are fascinators with magical powers of invisibility. They are said to assist in seeing into the future as well as facilitating eternal youthfulness.
“Love In The Mist” by Mike Mason.
Do not be tricked by her sharp presentation. Nigella Damascena or “Love In The Mist,” is a soft plant that says “Kiss me!” Historically evoking images of “The Bride,” with her hair down as a sign of purity. A concept reinforced in this image by the foundation of purity and love associated with the white rose petals on which they are placed. Printed on metal.
“Iris” by Mike Mason.
A family of friendly tiny purple Japanese Iris share their message of Purity. With Respect, Wisdom and Valor these flowers faithfully transport you to the glowing beyond. A place filled with the Joy, Optimism, and Friendship promised by the yellow Rose.
 
“Calla Lilies” by Mike Mason.
This world created by Peony petals offer an environment teaming with romance. It sings about prosperity and good fortune and is such an honorable place for a grouping of faithful, elegant and mysterious black Calla Lilies to dance.


Mike Mason, artist, spoke about his pressed flower art and demonstrated his art during the opening reception for Observing Botany at the Fairweather House and Gallery for April Seaside First Saturday Art Walk.

 

“My art is created with “nature’s paint brush.” Using dried and pressed flower and plant product to create my “brushstrokes.” Each fragile petal is glued and perfectly placed in collage style. I have the original art photographed to capture the color that only occurs in Nature.”

For over 12 years, Fairweather House and Gallery has offered an opening reception for selected regional artists.  The exhibitions give art patrons the opportunity to listen to an artist talk, to see new original art, to view gorgeous  new displays staged in a specific theme, listen to LIVE music and to watch an artist (or two) painting LIVE.

The Eyes Have It.  Saw-whet owl.

And, too, it’s a nearly, dearly life-size image (abt. 6″h)!

Proceeds in support of NCLC.

 

 

Found in a coastal scrub nest box placed  for local wood ducks, a saw-whet owl, flew out to land on  a branch, where it watched the birders doing the nest box housekeeping, then flew back into the box, with a nod and a  howdy do hoot. Saw-whets winter in dense forests along the coast range.

About the Northern Saw-whet Owl:

 

Birders who prowl through conifer groves in winter sometimes find this round-headed little gnome perched there, sitting still as if to avoid notice. Avoiding notice is a task at which this owl often succeeds; it is overlooked in many places where it occurs. Late at night, males give a rhythmic tooting song that may go on for hours with scarcely a break. The bird was named for this song, which reminded settlers of the sound of a whetstone sharpening a saw.

Nesting

Early in breeding season, male sings incessantly at night to defend territory and attract a mate. Nest site is in cavity in tree, usually 15-60′ above ground. Mostly use abandoned woodpeckers holes. Will also use artificial nest boxes. Apparently will not use same site two years in a row.

Length 7.1–8.3 in
Wingspan 16.5–18.9 in

Weight 2.3–5.3 oz
