"Arboretum Spring" Seattle Arboretum, landscape painting by Robin Weiss

"Arboretum Spring" 36x18  $2200

This work was a companion piece to "Rhodie Walk", a plein air painting done at the Seattle Arboretum last year. Our end of the year PAWA show always pairs a plein air painting with a studio painting inspired by the plein air piece....It  is always an amazing show put on by Plein Air Washington Artists in October every year and exhibited at the American Art Company in Tacoma, WA. This was last years studio work. It never made it to the blog so I am posting it now to let you know that this painting is still available and you can get purchase information simply by calling the Cole Gallery during business hours at:

The summer flowers are winding down now although the dahlias are still pretty spectacular in the flower farm next door!  Stay tuned for more flower paintings as I finally get to work in the studio for the winter..=]

"Grand Teton" plein air painting by Robin Weiss

"Grand Teton"   9x12 oil on panel   $600

I painted over the plein air sketch done in the Tetons when I returned home in 2018. This was the result which never got posted.  I tried to create more distance and atmosphere between the foreground and the distant mountains.  I may have created too much distance looking at this again! Ha!  I do like the photo taken in sunlight that shows more of the texture and juicy brushwork. =]
