Lyda Rose

I’ve written about Rogue Valley Roses before – and I’m still such a big fan.  Mrs. Janet Inada graciously hosted myself and two other artists for an afternoon of painting on her A M A Z I N G rose farm in late May of this year.  She grows and sells roses on their own root stock – heirloom and new varieties, and trust me, growing these roses is addictive.  I have 5 and am planning for at least 5 more.  Any patch of sun in my yard gets a rose!

This is Lyda.

I painted this painting on location on a journey through Yellowstone near Old Faithful Basin.  The great American Bison almost disappeared entirely from our landscape when they were slaughtered.   It was said that at one time there were as few as 29 Bison left.  It is amazing how they have made a comeback.  This painting is in tribute to the American Bison and celebrates the American West.

Hornbrook Barn, Opus 2

Hornbrook Barn, Opus 2 ~ Original Architectural Landscape Painting by Stefan Baumann

10 x 18 Oil on Panel

Framing

Framed in Gold and Wood

Signed

Lower Right  - Baumann  Monogram GV  Date: 2012

Provenance

This amazing old red barn located off the freeway near Hornbrook, California catches my eye every time I drive to Medford, Oregon to teach painting classes.  It is located just north of The Grand View Ranch and Mt. Shasta in a quaint and picturesque farming community where it has become an inspirational location for many of my new paintings that I plan to paint this year. Before I begin a painting, I think about why I am attracted to the subject that I am choosing to paint, what the message or personal observation is that I want to share with the viewer, and what composition will make my message clear and moving to anyone who sees my painting. In this painting of an old red barn, I wanted to capture the change of seasons by contrasting the fallen dead oaks in the background with the fresh green spring grass in the foreground. I find the ever-changing theme of rebirth and renewal in nature fascinating. In my composition of this painting, I positioned the main focal point just to the right of the barn, and then added the fence that darts along the foreground to lead the viewer’s eye to the focal point.

Price

$1,650

This painting of a Yellowstone geyser was painted between two storms en plein air in 2013 in Yellowstone National Park. Since this majestic white-cap geyser erupts every 12 hours, I painted the base of the geyser first, then waited for the eruption and captured it as it was happening.
