'Bear Spot' painted during Amato's Gallery demonstration

Bear Spot, pastel, 6"x12" (SOLD)

Here's the piece I painted at Amato's during "Breakfast At The Gallery" while demonstrating pastel painting Saturday, March 6th . I did most of it at the gallery with just a little touch-up in the studio. It's always fun to show the public how I paint and answer questions all the while.

Painting Accepted Into Coos Art Museum Exhibition

Deadline Falls II, 9"x12", pastel painting by Gretha Lindwood ©2008

I'm pleased to announce my pastel painting, "Deadline Falls II," has been accepted to the Expressions West 2010 Exhibition at the Coos Art Museum. Dates of the exhibition are April 23 through July 3, 2010. Coos Art Museum is located at 235 Anderson Avenue, Coos Bay, Oregon 97420, Phone 541-26-3901,www.coosart.org.

The 9"x12" pastel painting depicts the short but massive Deadline Falls on the North Umpqua River in Oregon. It was painted en plein air (in the outdoors) on a rather warm day. As I stood observing and painting I was treated to the sight of several salmon jumping up the falls.
