Art by: Jean Schwalbe, landscape paintings
"Jean's impressionistic paintings become almost a surprise to the viewer as the colors are not what one would expect to find in a landscape. Jean captures energy by pushing the color palette to rich, warm and vivid hues. Originally a watercolorist who studied under George Hamilton, Jean has been painting acrylics for the past ten years. They give her more "freedom" and using "lots of paint is more fun". And it is certainly more fun for the viewer! Whether painting rushing streams and rivers, familiar Oregon mountains, meadows, clouds or all of the above together, she captures a special intensity and vitality found in nature."
Art by: Dona White, watercolor mixed media
Dona's art is whimsical watercolor, bursting with lots of color and movement.
"Color sustains me! It influences me in countless ways that nourish the deepest part of my soul. I believe color elicits as many emotional and intellectual responses as there are hues in the spectrum. I use color and pattern to reflect and share my personal joys, loves, memories, dreams and hopes.
I was raised in Chicago and hold a BA from Barat College, Lake Forest, IL. My work has been juried into a number of shows and is collected across the US. I have been a Portland resident since 1984."
