On Our Way

Carol and I were on our way down the Oregon coast for the umpteenth time when this old cedar fence caught my eye near Cape Perpetua. The wildflowers and mood at the edge of the sea completed the story. By the way, no matter how well thought out a painting seems initially, there are ALWAYS surprises and opportunities to make it stronger during the painting process. As I neared the end of this watercolor I realized I needed to interrupt the viewer’s eye as it traveled along the fence line. Adding someone’s driftwood walking stick accomplished that. To be honest, there are paintings that change substantially from inspiration to completion. Years ago I realized the only thing that mattered is if the painting “works” in the end. The responsibility and freedom an artist has is to make sure that happens.

Motivation to move to Cannon Beach began in early the 1990’s when the owners, Bob Neroni and Lenore Emery first traveled through the beach community on the way to see Lenore’s family in Seattle. After visiting the quaint artsy town, the two daydreamed about the many ways they might live where they loved to visit. And visit they did, every year there after until finally, after building their own beach bungalow in Cannon Beach, they moved in full time spring of 2004.

The idea of opening EVOO was very appealing. Both Bob and Lenore had spent many years teaching or training in the food industry. Both admit that teaching the craft of cooking is one of the most satisfying experiences of their career. When the former little beach cottage became available on the main commercial street in Cannon Beach, their motion to the ocean gained momentum.

What’s more important–the beer or the food? We say both. In fact, The Pelican Pub & Brewery is a world leader in the pairing of food and beer. After all, we’ve been doing it for 16 years.  Our executive chef and brewmaster make it their daily mission to understand how food and beer flavors complement one another.

This means not only how the beer pairs with the food, but how to incorporate beer into preparing menu items in order to achieve the most flavor.  This could be the Kiwanda Cream Ale batter in our famous Tower of Rings, the Beer Blanc sauce that tops our blackened cod or the brownie sundae made with Tsunami Stout.  Whatever you order, there has been thought put into how our beer can be integrated into the dish to create a unique culinary experience. In addition to the menu items cooked with the beer, all our menus feature recommended pairings so you’ll know what to order with what.

And if you really want a treat of a lifetime, attend one of our three annual Brewers Dinners, which take you on a five-course culinary journey of beer and food complete with commentary by our internationally-acclaimed Brewmaster, Darron Welch.

“Out on the Edge”

I generally stop at the spot where this storm sculpted tree resides as I wind my way up and down the coast. The tree is one reason (checking the surf is the other, but we won’t talk about that here). The moody, foggy sunset was what inspired this painting, along with the tree of course. Living on the edge of the sea 24/7 shows its determination, resilience and in the end, personality- kind of like the rest of us.

 Silver & Gray

The Pacific Northwest coast is officially a temperate rainforest renowned for its timber. Since everything flows into the sea, our beaches get a fresh batch of driftwood with each passing winter. Large trees like these are rare of course, but they also stick around for decades. There is a wonderful silvery hue, a patina if you will; these old logs develop over the years of living life in the sun and rain.
In the foggy background of this watercolor are the “Sisters” of Siletz Bay, one of my favorite subjects to paint. Inspiration took root when I noticed the basic form of the Sisters repeated in miniature in what was left of the limbs on the driftlog. I use the design principle of repetition frequently in my work to unify the composition.

SunsetThroughTheKeyhole

“Sunset Through The Keyhole”

Sunset Through The Keyhole

These sea stacks are within Ecola Park on the northern Oregon coast. Dramatic and uniquely shaped by endless Pacific breakers, they are a resting place for sea lions and a rookery for sea birds. I’m amazed how many of our coastal rocks have holes through them. Some are very small while others, like this one, are large enough to drive a truck though.
The walk between Crescent Beach and Indian Beach on the hard sand of Ecola is one of my favorites. The contrast between the dark basalt rock and airy sunset skies was what inspired this watercolor. The reflections of sky and rock in the tide pools added the interest and drama I was after for this composition.

High Tide Line – Cannon Beach

Summer’s gentle seas and onshore breeze annually replenish the sand washed away by our winter storms. Additionally, with each passing day, the numbers of shells increase as they collect at the high tide line. Inspiration for this painting came while walking the shore and simply lowering my field of vision to include the beauty right at my feet.
