Old Town

Old Town Florence, OR. One of my favorite places, we go there often. Fun shops, kinda funky, on the banks of the Siuslaw River. What’s even better, it’s only ten minutes from our house. A quick sketch before I paint it.

Pencil on paper.

Man Reading

This is a pastel on sanded paper. It is of a sitting spot along the Siuslaw River in Old Town, Florence, OR. The brightly painted seal is unique to Florence and there are several around town. This one is my favorite. BTW, the man reading is my son. Florence is our new hometown.

Snowy River

11×14 pastel on black sanded paper. This is a variation on a theme of my grandfather, TJ Steves very old pastel painting. I have loved his painting ever since I can remember. His is much better but I had fun painting my version.
