Wild Rose Art

The bank along the Yaquina Bay in Newport, Oregon is lined with gorgeous wild roses in the springtime. In the background, there is a combination of pleasure boats and fishing boats and, the beautiful Yaquina Bay Bridge.

Off to the right, are some fishermen headed for the Pacific Ocean to try and catch a halibut. The day is overcast and it is about ready to pour.

I converted the capture to High Dynamic Range Photography (HDR) and then applied a special texture called "Image Luminance". It really added a "pop" to the rose bushes.

What is so special is the combination of a nautical scene with a floral scene!

Tom McCall Waterfront Park Artwork

This is the walkway along Tom McCall Waterfont Park, bordering the Willamette River. The Portland Maritime Museum is the boat off to the right.

Given any day, Portlanders love to walk along the river and take in the tranquility of the area. The Waterfront Park is downtown and, is very convenient for folks, who work in the area to take a nice walk during the lunch hour.

However, this capture was made on a Sunday and, many of the folks on a walk here come from all over. The Morrison Bridge is in the background and the high rises are on the east side. This image has been converted into a digital painting,

Chairs By The Sea Artworks

First, this is not a staged scene! These chairs are almost, not quite in someone's front yard. They are located right on the edge of the beach in the hamlet of  Neskowin on the Oregon Coast.

Neskowin is a real small community about seven miles north of Lincoln City on the Central Coast. There are no strip malls. No high rises! Not even a gas station!

However, there is this cool, laid back community with gorgeous beach cottages and, beach right next to the Pacific Ocean! Then there is "Proposal Rock" (the outcropping in the background)...a place with a history associated with romance and...well?

The setting, where the chairs are situated should tell us something about turning cell phones off, grabbing a beverage and doing absolutely nothing!

Historic Home Art

Below is the John M. Moyer House is in Brownsville. No, not that Brownsville...Brownsville, Oregon!

It is right off of I5 between Corvallis and Eugene! It is where "Stand By Me" was filmed although, they refer to it as Castle Rock in the movie.

It is an absolute cool little town where they have restored many of the original, old buildings. The Moyer House which was built in 1881. It is in the "Italianate" style architecture.

A tour was made of the home and it is absolutely gorgeous! In 1974 the Moyer House was placed on the National Register of Historic Places. This image has been processed into a High Dynamic Range photo and then converted to a digital painting.

Covered Bridge Art

 This is the Weddle Bridge in Sweet Home, Oregon. It is a 120 foot long wooden covered bridge.

The original bridge was built in 1937 and, rebuilt in 1990. The bridge originally spanned Thomas Creek.

In 1989, a Sweet Home group rebuilt the Weddle Bridge across Ames Creek in Sankey Park.

I combined a High Dynamic Range image with an unusual texture to give it a painted look. At one time Oregon had more covered bridges than any state west of the Mississippi!

Bayfront Restaurant Art

This Mo's Seafood Restaurant is a staple on the Historic Bayfront in Newport on the Oregon Coast. Mo's goes back to 1946.

It started out as  "Freddie & Mo's"!  Later, it was renamed after the original owner Mohava "Mo" Niemi.

She is known as being the "Clam Chowder Queen" in Oregon. Not far away on the Bayfront, and across the street, is the original Mo's! The Mo's pictured here sits on a dock. The other one does not.

Paul Newman, Robert Kennedy and Henry Fonda ate at the original!
