"The Martha" original marine painting by Robin Weiss

"The Martha"  12x16 oil on panel      Sold


If you keep up with my blog you may recognize this view of the Port Townsend Marina.  There is a nice picnic table here and several good views to paint. A good coffee shop nearby...I keep coming back!   When I showed the painting to a friend he said "Oh that's the Martha! "  Apparently a well known schooner in the Northwest.

"Pink Pearl" original floral painting by Robin Weiss

"Pink Pearl" 20x20 oil on canvas $1800
available through the J Go Gallery


"Pink Pearl" is a rhododendron variety that's pretty common in the Northwest. We have one in our yard where the reference for this painting was taken. It was the grey/green leaves with the complimentary red accents that attracted me to this composition and I tried hard to render them authentically. That's what viewers kept commenting on when I posted it, so guess I achieved some success.

You can view this painting and other recent floral work at the J Go Gallery May Flower Show opening First Friday, May 5th.  Hope to see you in Winslow during First Friday Artwalk!!
