Revisiting Special Places

Next week, a new show featuring the work of six Willamette Valley pastel artists opens at the Jaqua Gallery, Emerald Art Center. This is my first exhibit with this group of incredibly talented artists. And for this show I included works from what I call my special places. Many of the paintings are scenes I have painted many times before at different times of day or from slightly different vantage points. Familiarity never dulls the joy I get from capturing their essence. The changing light, the different seasons, the blazing sun, the coolness in the air, remind me of just how generous nature is. She could let up a bit on the mosquitos, though!
