The Butte from Amazon Park

The Butte From Amazon Park

Little gap in the vegetation gave a nice view to Spencer’s Butte across the running trail in Amazon Park. Painted as the seasons were changing; the bits and pieces of this scene resemble the way it looked on different days. The clouds were putting on a show on the day I started this. Acrylic on canvas 16″ x 20″. In outer world.


On the Corner

On the Corner

New landscape painting in Eugene. This is the Jacqua Center, a very high end building on the University of Oregon that exclusively serves student athletes. Fall started to show up while I painted this. Acrylic on canvas, 16″ x 20″. Also in outer world.

Cross Campus – landscape painting in Eugene

Had the chance to start painting outside again, now in Eugene, OR. This is a view through the University of Oregon campus towards the new Matthew Knight Arena, home to the UO basketball team. More from Eugene to come. Acrylic on canvas, 16″ x 20″. Part of the outer world gallery.

The lines for this site-specific collaboration were drawn by the three of us altogether, in one place.  From there, the panels were separated according to a Latin Square pattern.  For many, this pattern will be familiar from the game Sudoku, where each number appears in each column and row once.  For this installation, there was one additional row for which the pattern of the first row was repeated.  Each row had its own prompt which drove the creations that followed.  This is how the art looked on day one:

All these pictures can be viewed in a slideshow on the collaborative page.

The week-long show began Monday, if you are in Eugene, be sure to come back (to the LaVerne Krause gallery) everyday through February 10th as the installation disintegrates.  An explanation of the installation and some more detailed photos will soon follow.
