Oregon Coast


These two images show a good comparison between two of the many moods of the Oregon Coast. They were both taken on the same day, within 30 minutes of each other. Each showing two very different moods. In fact, the second image, with all the gray clouds, is an image taken, facing South. The first image was taken South of the second image, about 30 minutes prior. One would think there would be more blue.

Anyway, I hope you like this week’s post? Vote in the poll above, or comment below. Likes are always welcome. Next week, I think I’ll post every day, yes, even on Thanksgiving Day, some very beautiful images from photo session held earlier this week.

Oregon Coast Beach Landscapes


The Oregon Coast is truly beautiful in it’s own right. There are spots on the coast that are more spectacular than the rest. Each part offering different perspectives on exactly what beauty is. One such place is Oswald West State Park. South of Cannon Beach and North of the Nehalem Bay. It’s most definitely a place you’ll want to stop to check out on your own drive up the coast. Here are just a few images that I was able to capture while on a recent visit.

Remember to join me every Tuesday I feature an artist whose work I’ve been fortunate enough to photograph. If you’d like to be a Featured Artist here contact me via email at kindmuse@gmail.com.

Surrealistic Roses and Starfish


A friend of mine got married on a beach along the Oregon Coast last week. I was allowed to bring my camera along and photograph what I thought might be interesting to photograph while the ceremony was being created. It was a pretty awesome wedding ceremony, where families of the groom and bride created a path lined with driftwood, seaweed, branches, rock, and such materials found on the beach. The couple then walked down the path to the waterside and that is where the ceremony took place. Barefoot in the sand and salt water.

I present in this week’s Photo Blog some images of starfish and roses. The Starfish found naturally, and not so naturally, on the beach. The roses being brought in to add color to the walkway. I found these images to be somewhat surreal in nature. I wonder if you do too? Let me know in the comments below.

I hope you like the images in today’s post? Comment below or rate above.

Featured Artist – Jan Shield


I want to bring to light works created by Jan Shield as my featured Artist this week. Jan Shield is a multidimensional artist living out in the Newberg area of Oregon (Southwest of Portland). He taught at Pacific University for over 40 years and now is enjoying retirement at his self made Forest Preserve called the Dancing Trees Sanctuary. I’ve been out to his place several times to photograph the various art that he’s created. Besides getting to sample some delicious vegetables out of his garden, I get to see works he’s created out of clay, wood carvings, and acrylic on canvas. This week’s featured artist is truly an artist with any varied talents.

I’m excited to announced that Jan’s being represented by a new gallery out on the Oregon Coast. The Fairweather House and Garden gallery in Seaside, OR is the new gallery representing Jan Shield. There’s a new opening coming up on Sept 6th at the Fairweather Gallery too. He’s still represented by the Portland Art Museum’s Rental Sales Gallery as well as the River Sea Gallery in Astoria, OR. So plenty of opportunities to see this magnificent artist.

I wanted to feature Jan’s pieces in clay that he’s created, pictured above. These pieces are created in raku and oxidation. Then, for my 5th image here, there’s one new acrylic on canvas dyptych to check out. I hope you like this week’s featured artist. Click the rating button above or comment below. I appreciate your taking the time to check out this photo blog this week.
