Deborah DeWit: “Boundaries and Horizons” New Paintings

Deborah DeWit is a well-known Oregon artist whose narrative paintings often explore autobiographical subjects that express familiar human experiences through beautifully rendered scenes that convey moments in time. For this new exhibition “Boundaries and Horizons” DeWit states “These paintings continue my attempt to capture the essence of my experience– living on four and half acres on the edge of an estuary, surrounded by woods, bordered by the sea, in a hundred year old house on the North Oregon Coast.  If it is possible to find all the universal truths, the elemental memories, in one place, I mean to find them here.  My observations and thoughts become imagery.”

DeWit’s mature painting style has developed over the course of her lengthy career, which began as a photographer in late 1970’s. DeWit now has several books published on her work, highlighting her overarching themes in photography, writing, oil painting and pastels. Her current paintings are naturalistic depictions in oil that combine loose expressive brushwork and layers of paint in a realistic style to capture essential details of a time and place. Many of her paintings also suggest metaphors about the larger human experience through the interplay of indoor and outdoor environments in her sensitive and thought-provoking compositions.

Helga Winter: Sculptural Paintings: Paper & Mixed Media

Known throughout the Pacific Northwest for her woodturnings, Helga Winter’s newest endeavor is the creation sculptural paintings that are made from deconstructed books. Winter uses unwanted book pages – the papers are rolled, colored and waxed to form compositions where the original book’s knowledge is hidden. These mixed media pieces are intriguing in both the reformulation of material as well as in the way they suggest the rethinking and reshaping of what has been learned, opening avenues for new truths.

Hazel Schlesinger

Beginning/Intermediate Plein Air in Oil

An Introduction and Beyond. First timers welcome!

A challenge for many painters is learning how to edit or how to simplify the landscape into a few basic shapes and values. Learn how to express the essence of a scene by editing the details into simple abstract shapes and using bold brush strokes to build your landscape. We will be using a limited color palette to build a pleasing landscape. Students will leave with several small studies of the area around beautiful Cannon Beach. Demonstration and individual attention leads to success.

Class size limited to 8 artists. $185 for both days.

Hull-Still-Needles

“Still – Needles” by Jeffrey Hull

As evening approached I began looking for the right place to enjoy the last few minutes of daylight. No surprise, I ended up down at the water’s edge.
These slender basalt seastacks are known as “The Needles” and though they are small compared to their neighbor (Haystack Rock) they are impressive just the same. As you walk closer, their size and the abundance of life that calls them home becomes evident.

Hull-BayBoundNurseLog

Bay Bound Nurse Log

It would be interesting to know just how long some of these old logs have been floating around inside the bay. I’ve observed some for over 40 years as I’ve contemplated painting them. They are one of many things that say “Pacific Northwest” to me.
Nurse Logs are a bit like a tiny island that occasionally, on exceptionally high tides associated with heavy rainfall, simply floats away in silence to a new location with little or no damage done. As they decompose over time their nutrient rich “soil” provides a start for the next generation.

Hull-CherryBlossomShowers

Cherry Blossom Showers

Outside, behind my studio, grows a cherry tree. We welcome the blooms each year with a sigh of relief knowing another winter is waning. The studio window frames it in such a way that one day as a gust of wind blew the loose blossoms from their hold I thought what a unique painting that would make. We framed this watercolor as I have a few other times for special paintings with polyester resin on the inside of the glass so it looks as though you are gazing out a window with raindrops on the outside which I was as inspiration struck.

Hull-IntoandOutOf

Into & Out Of

The fog that is! I love the fact that there’s always something going on at the beach. Some days it’s as simple as the breakers slowly dissipating at our feet at the edge of the sea, and that’s just fine with me. Walking at the south end of Cannon Beach takes you past these two basalt sea stacks at Silver Point. I’m frequently on this peaceful stretch of sand in the mornings as I prepare for the day ahead.

Hull-WhereDaffodilsStillBloom

Where Daffodils Still Bloom

Decades ago there were several beach homes along the stretch of coast between Silver Point and Arcadia Beach. The cost of maintenance and repair of the access road eventually drove the State of Oregon to purchase the land from the owners. The blooming daffodils each spring remind me of that charming, now long gone little beach front community.
