"A Walk to the Lighthouse" plein air painting by Robin Weiss

"A Walk to the Lighthouse"  9x12 plein air ,oil on panel  $700

 

Maury and I couldn't get together on Fathers Day this year so we planned a painting day a week later coinciding with a PAWA paint-out at Fort Worden.  While only seeing one other painter we still had a great time painting down on the beach with stunning views of the Point Wilson Lighthouse and Point Wilson itself.




The day was overcast with bright light filtering through as the clouds thinned out during the day making for perfect light conditions for painting.



This was my first of two paintings done that day before we headed to Doc's Marina Grill for some fish tacos and a couple beers.

"Little Norway" Poulsbo plein air painting by Robin Weiss

"Little Norway"  11x14 oil on panel, plein air   SOLD


 I had the pleasure of meeting by chance, a long time collector from Massachusetts at the Front Street Gallery in Poulsbo this week.  It was a surprise for her too!  Always a pleasure and inspiring to meet folks from all over who love and appreciate the work I do. That is one of the benefits of being an artist. To be someone who creates art that others put into their homes because the art has inspired them or evoked a feeling of awe, joy, happiness or peace (most of the comments I get). It is a privilege and also really humbling.  I always want to produce the best work I can for the folks who love my paintings.

Poulsbo is the little town that we live closest to. It was settled and built by immigrants from Norway who saw a bit of their own fjords here in the new world.  The town has always had that small town flavor although that is changing like so many other places with lots of growth and new people moving in.

I am represented in Poulsbo by the Front Street Gallery, a co-op owned and operated by 25 plus artists and crafters.  Stop by if you are in the area for some of the best local art in the area.  =]

I did a similar painting to this one on location in Crested Butte back in 2021. I tried it again in the studio from the reference photos I took.  It's a good example of the difference between being out in the environment of nature or a cozy studio in the middle of winter..  You decide..
