Puget Sound Morning Small Colorful Marine Landscape

"Puget Sound Morning" 
5 x 7" oil

One of my favorite spots in the Seattle area is the Des Moines, WA beach park. When I lived near this location I often visited this lovely area in all kinds of weather. There was always so much to see with the long pier, the moorage, the rock strewn beach, the sea birds, and the people. 
"Puget Sound Morning", a small colorful original marine oil painting, shows an impressionistic view of somewhat still waters one morning at this beach in Washington State. The water reflected the hillside of dense evergreens and other trees. Vashon Island is in view across the Sound where ships and boats sail between Seattle and Tacoma. All was quiet in the morning sunlight. Can you smell my hot cup of coffee?

"Puget Sound Morning" is an oil painting on canvas panel, ready for a standard size  5 x 7" frame.

Creek Bend Landscape Colorful Painting Daily Art by K. Joann Russell

Creek Bend, colorful small oil painting by K. Joann Russell
"Creek Bend"
5 x 7" oil painting

Even though it has been awhile since I've posted on this blog, I did complete my series of small paintings on gessoed mat board. This colorful oil painting marks the last of the series.

Creek Bend", a small colorful original landscape oil painting, shows an impressionistic view of a mountain stream changing direction as it flows through evergreen trees into touches of spring light on bushes. This is typical of fresh water streams in southern Oregon where boulders force the current to change direction creating rapids and more still waters in pools. 

The contrast of cool greens and blues with warm golds and browns gives a freshness to go with the cold waters of mountain runoff. This creek is typical of the many in the mountains of southern Oregon.  

 Lots of surface texture on this small daily painting makes the scene seem so real.  You might find a trout resting resting from the rapids in the calmer waters of the shady pool. This painting can be your special memory piece of your favorite fishing hole.

"Creek Bend", an oil painting on archivally prepared mat board, is varnished and ready to place in a standard size frame. It is 5 x 7".
