Winterbird #6

Winterbird #6  5x7 oil on panel, framed   $150


Hope you are enjoying a winter wonderland like we are here in the Pacific Northwest! If you are, you will probably be seeing these friendly birds at your feeder.  Chickadees are one of the songbirds that will readily use a nest box in the spring. Be sure to clean yours out before they start nesting!!  Enjoy!!

"Edmonds Side Street" original urban oil painting by Robin Weiss

"Edmonds Side Street" 15x19  oil on linen   $1200
Available through the Cole Gallery   425-697-2787


Any subject can make great art. Even a non-descript side street on a wet Northwest day in Edmonds.

Part of appreciating life is the ability to quietly observe the beauty of everyday encounters with all that surounds us.  A special bonus is to be able to make a living capturing those moments on canvas..

View this painting in person or inquire through the Cole Gallery in Edmonds WA. 

Thanks to all of you who encourage me every day as I live the artists life!

"The Resting Place" Original Northwest, oil painting by Robin Weiss

"The Resting Place"  14x18 oil on linen   SOLD


I keep finding pieces in my artwork file that have not been posted on the blog. It's important because all my sites are interconnected now.  When I post on my blog, that post is picked up and applied to my Dailypaintworks gallery page....and when you click on the portfolio tab on my website, it goes to that DP gallery page. if I want all my work to be available on the website, it needs to be posted on the blog....Anyhow, I'm trying to keep up! 

The Resting Place is one of those paintings that never got posted. It recently sold at the Roby King Gallery on Bainbridge Island.  It's a scene of Port Hadlock from a favorite painting location outside the Ajax Cafe.  You can see more of my work available at the Roby King Gallery HERE.

"Fish Park Trail" original landscape painting by Robin Weiss

"Fish Park Trail"  11x14 oil on linen   $800


They made a park at the bottom of our road where Dog Fish Creek meets Liberty Bay and called it Dog Fish Park.  I guess, originally, it was Dog Fish Bay because they caught a lot of Dog Fish here. The livers had oil in them which they would render and use to grease the skids that slid the logs into the bay for transport. They changed the name to Liberty Bay which was probably a good idea. 

There are a lot of trails that wind through the marsh now and it is a good place not far away to paint. I caught it on a foggy day here.  This is what winter mostly looks like in the Pacific Northwest.  I love it!

"Fish Camp on Stavis Bay" original oil painting by Robin Weiss

"Fish Camp on Stavis Bay" 24x32 oil on canvas    $2200
available at the Roby King Gallery   206-842-2063

I originally started this painting on another canvas. I was working from a photo taken as Ann and I were headed out for a day hike to Guillemot Cove near Seabeck, WA.  If you have an interest in this work you can see it or inquire through the Roby King Gallery on Bainbridge Island.

I started in my usual underpainting color, Quinacridone Rust made by MGraham Paint Co. I liked how the design was coming along and posted it. I received quite a few good comments and got cold feet about going in with color...I didn't want to ruin it!  That happens to me sometimes but usually I soldier on and sometimes I do ruin the painting. This time I decided to save the monotone painting and start a new canvas. I really wasn't satisfied with the new painting. It needed something!  Noticing a light brush stroke in the distant land mass I turned it into a beach fire and called it a fish camp...That added interest but I still wasn't thrilled about it. I still have the first tonal painting and after time has gone on, now I think I can go in with color and finish it.

 That's how it goes sometimes.  =]

"Marrowstone Point" , plein air landscape painting by Robin Weiss

"Marrowstone Point"   12x24 oil on panel   SOLD

There is a stretch of salt marsh as you pass by Indian Island along the causeway to Marrowstone. I love the open vistas of tidelands, marsh and distant points of land. I think sometimes about the ancestors of the S'Klallam and Chimacum peoples who used to hunt and gather here for over 1500 years. It's a good place to be quiet and listen,... and especially I like to try and capture the authenticity of this land on canvas.

"Cotton Wood Creek" Teton National Park plein air painting by Robin Weiss

"Cotton Wood Creek" 12x9 oil  SOLD


Sometimes I lose track of paintings and forget they are even out there until I get a check in the mail. A nice surprise came from the Roby King Gallery on Bainbrdige Island this week for two paintings they sold.

This painting was done several years ago during a trip with Plein Air Washington Artists to Teton National Park. I remember being a little nervous painting this one because I had no bear spray and there were reports of grizzlies in the area and a recent attack.....All I saw were mosquitoes!

If you are Christmas shopping on Bainbridge Island be sure to visit the Roby King Gallery! They have some of the best representational painters in the Northwest on display there.   =]

Merry Christmas!
