"The Martha" original marine painting by Robin Weiss

"The Martha"  12x16 oil on panel   $900


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!!
