Eagle Harbor Homestead" Bainbridge Island, landscape painting by Robin Weiss

"Eagle Harbor Homestead"  10x12 oil on panel    $700
available at the Roby King Gallery

I painted this while hanging out with the Bainbridge crew down by the gas station in Eagledale. You may be wondering who the Bainbridge crew is...A small group of local artists who find any excuse to hang out and paint...and eat...and drink...together..Here are a few of their websites in case you're one of those people who like to follow threads where they lead...

Nancy Filsinger
Gigi Godfrey
There are a few others who show up but this is probably the core group.

If you like this painting and want to see more of my work, stop by the Roby King Gallery on Bainbridge Island. I'll be there on July 5th 2019 for the opening of a group show featuring scenes of BBI.
If you are in Edmonds stop by the Cole Gallery for a real treat. So many great artists there!
In Seattle, I have Seattle city scenes at the Michael Birawer Gallery on 1st Ave.
I have a Featured Artist exhibition at the Front Street Gallery in Poulsbo through June 2019

That's it for now! Have fun out there!

Opening Night will be during the First Friday Artwalk in Winslow on July 5th. All the galleries in town will be open late and it is always a pleasure to hang out in Winslow on a warm summer night with friends and visit the shops and galleries in town.  Stop by and say hi to the artists at the Roby King. We would love to see you!

It has been awhile since my last post and a lot has happened!  I participated in the Two Rivers Plein Air Festival in New Braunfels Texas where I received the Artists Choice Award and then drove down to California to participate in the Carmel Art Festival.  I am currently the featured artist at the Front Street Gallery in Poulsbo and recently joined my grand daughter Brooklyn and son Maury at Paint Out Poulsbo. Brooklyn won First Place in her age division and Maury won Second Place.  I did a demo for the Cole Gallery in Edmonds and will be traveling down to Colorado in July to do one at the Oh Be Joyful Gallery in Crested Butte......sheesh...sounds like a lot but there was more! I want to post about all these events on the blog eventually but that may take all winter! Ha!!  Anyway...stay tuned for more adventures In Plein Air!
