"Field of Daisies" landscape painting by Robin Weiss

"Field of Daisies"  9x14 oil on panel    $800
In between painting trips I browsed through old phone pictures of Cape Disappointment and painted this one in the studio.
 I often use a high horizon line in composition especially when you have a varied and interesting foreground which will pull the viewer into the scene.

"Field Afar" Whitman Mission Park, plein air painting by Robin Weiss

"Field Afar"   9x14 oil on panel    $800

Near Walla Walla is the Whitman Mission Park which documents in a balanced way the history of the local Indian tribes and the immigration of eastern missionaries, traders, adventurers and those seeking to settle in the west. See a youtube video  about the mission here,

During our visit to the park I painted this scene from the back of the ranger station looking across the fields to a farm in the distance.
