Roseburg Paint Out

I usually resist paint out competition weekends, because they are never really very productive; I wind up usually making paintings in places I don’t have an affinity for and there is not enough time and there is the added pressure of knowing your work will literally be judged.  Umpqua Valley Arts Association hosts a paint out in Roseburg that lasts a few days and is in a generally good time of year for weather, so I signed up.  We had two full days of painting and I was able to connect with some really excellent Oregon painters. So, it was worth going to.

 

This dying oak tree was the painting I liked the best out of all I made that weekend. 7.5″ x 10″

 

Two days in a row, different weather, slightly different composition.
Each measures 10″ x 16″.

 

12″ x 20″  Maybe I liked this one best.  I don’t know.
