Since moving to the Oregon coat in 1990’s I have hiked the river trail and been duly impressed by the landscape I have seen. Over time the landscape began a big part of my work. In 2012 I proposed a show for the Center for Visual Arts in Newport, Oregon called River Mantra. It was accepted. The show held in the Fall 2013 consisted of some this series. It continues just like a river fluid and changing. These are the oil or acrylic paintings from 2012-14 of this series.
