"Double Kayaks" oil painting by Robin Weiss

"Double Kayaks"  6x6 oil on panel    Sold
While spending some time in Freemont taking photos for a commission painting I ran across these kayaks tied up at the marina. The colors, and the reflections those colors generated in the water grabbed my attention and I snapped a few pictures. This small painting is the result of those reference shots .

"Sailing Day on Elliott Bay"  6x6 oil on panel   Sold
After finishing the three paintings for the Randy Higbee Show and having cut up a stack of 6x6 panels from some old paintings and odd stuff laying around the studio, I just kept painting from reference photos in my large box of past pictures.  I have painted from this photo before. You can see it HERE.
  It was good to have some smaller fresh paintings for our annual studio tour, Arts in the Woods , which was a big success again this year. I'm not sure who all follows my blog so it was fun to meet some of you! Thanks for coming and  mentioning that you follow my adventures "en plein air"!
 I sold lots of work including this little one, and I feel incredibly blessed to be able do what I love and love what I do for a living!  Don't give up on your dreams!

"Salmon Cascade" Sol Duc River, , landscape oil painting by Robin Weiss in the Randy Higbee 6

"Salmon Cascade" 6x6 oil on panel  SOLD
A must take trip if you should find yourself on the Olympic Peninsula in Washington state is a drive up the road along the Sol Duc river to the Sol Duc Hot Springs and then on up the trail to the Sol Duc Falls. If you do, the Salmon Cascades are right along the way.

 I spent some time earlier this year scouting painting spots with my friend Jim Lamb for his workshop during Paint the Peninsula. We stopped at the Salmon Cascades and did a couple paintings of the river. I took a bunch of photos which I used to compose this painting.

This is the third and last painting accepted in the Randy Higbee Six Inch Squared Show in Costa Mesa California. You can view all my paintings in the show HERE.  By clicking the "Back" button on the page you can view all of the 600 plus paintings accepted.  By clicking on the image of the painting on the page you can view the image larger and see a paypal button for purchasing.
