Sally Cohen – Harbor Lights, Oil on Canvas, 30″ x 40″

I  want to feature one image this week. This is an image I created of Sally Cohen’s oil on canvas work title “Harbor Lights.” For what’s probably obvious reasons, this piece was really difficult to replicate digitally. It’s really dark, and because of the finish, it’s a little shinny. Which creates a lot of reflection. But if you zoom in really close, you can see a good size harbor town in the distance. I had to bring this piece over to my home studio in order to get a good image. The only place I had room to set up was in the Living Room. It only took 42 exposures in 2 hours!  Lot’s of lighting replacement before I settled on using the speed lights. My living room looked like a multi-room fort with all the black backdrops I had to put up to minimize reflection. I think I did a pretty good job? What do you think?

Sally Cohen is represented by the Portland Art Museum’s Rental Sales Gallery and the Freed Gallery in Lincoln City, OR.

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.
