"Jessie's Illwaco Fish Co" plein air, oil painting by Robin Weiss

"Jessies Illwaco Fish Co."  8x10 oil    $500

There is a great benefit to hanging out for a few days in a new painting location. You get to do some exploring and find hidden locations you didn't expect.  That's what happened when Ann and I stumbled on the little fishing community of  Illwaco during the Cape Disappointment paint out with the Plein Air Washington Painters.  We spent the next two days painting around this marina town with it's commercial fish processing plant, cool strip of shops and seafood restaurants and even a salt water estuary on the back side.....just great stuff for an artist!!  Stay tuned for more studio paintings from all the reference sketches and pics!
