  • Maeona L. Urban

    I am an artist yet I feel flattered to be considered an artist. I have not gone through the usual training methods to attain the title. My grandmother inspired my love of art and nature. I do plein air, realistic studio, and Northwest Coast Native American style artwork. I paint to comfort myself, to feel I have accomplished something worth sharing, to link with others and to see them connect to each other through the artwork. So by years of random trial and error, to satisfy either my own emotions or simply to please others, I paint.

  • Patricia J Cink

    Living on the Oregon coast, Patricia Cink finds herself challenged to capture the colors of the varying coastal light as it reflects off the ocean, sand and rocks or filters through the lush forests. She uses watercolor on Yupo paper and soft pastels to immerse herself in the color of the landscape, letting the composition follow. Both media allow for continual modifications as the painting develops.
