We just returned from more than a week at the Oregon coast. It was a great time to visit with stormy seas to watch from a safe distance and hunker down and do some reading…recommend “My Life With Bees” and the Wallace Stegner books. I did some sketching, but nothing of great significance.
I am starting a piece for the Hospice Fund Raiser. I usually give a painting to them for the “Night of Elegance” being an organization that does so much for so many.
My Etsy store is open online. A few prints are listed and a couple of originals. It is time consuming to load each item, so I need to put things for sale in there gradually…and see how well they sell.
Be looking at the blog for new work later next week.


About bonnie griffith

I am a landscape artist who works in pastels, oils and acrylics. My work focuses on representational studies of the western US. I am basically self taught with lots of workshops and studies with several landscape artists such as Bruce Haughey and Clark Elster. I live in southwestern Idaho, am a native Montanan with a strong connection to the land. I spend as much time as I can in MT painting as well other parts of the northwest. I appreciate getting out in the field and working plein air because there is nothing like completing a painting in the true light of day and visually not being compromised by the use of a photo. In my work, my goal is to produce a piece of work that draws the viewer into the painting and challenges them to explore the scene; get a sense of the time of day, the temperature, the light or lack of. If I have gotten that viewer to step out of their reality and into that painting and enjoy it, then my work was accomplished as I wished. View all posts by bonnie griffith
