"Skagit Fields" original landscape painting by Robin Weiss

"Skagit Fields"  12x24 oil on panel  SOLD


Big thanks to everyone who came out to Arts in the Woods studio tour! We didn't know what to expect but it turned out to be our best studio tour so far in the ten years we have been participating! Thanks to all who supported local artists in North Kitsap! It means so much to our community as a whole that you encourage our local artists and support local business! We couldn't do it without you!  =]

The painting above was bought by a local collector at AITW 2021. It depicts a tranquil scene in Skagit County Washington. The flower fields have been put to bed after the harvest season is done and the fall rains begin. It reminds the viewer of the changing and renewing landscape and a hopeful spring bursting with color and new life.

Don't forget to put Arts in the Woods on your calendar for next year! Always the second weekend in November where there will be a new crop of paintings to add to your collection!  Have a wonderful holiday season!

This painting was hanging in a featured artist exhibition at the Front Street Gallery in Poulsbo for the month of October.

I took some time to visit a few local organic farms.
The Fat Turnip Farm
is one not far from us in Eglon, Washington. They were very friendly and happy to let me set up to paint. I brought home a bag of cucumbers that were so good I went back a few weeks later to get some more and they were sold out!
