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 […]

Kim’s

Pretty much anyone from Medford knows – and loves – this place.  It’s been closed for years, and I hear it’s been purchased by some big outfit and will likely be torn down soon.  ALL RUMORS, of course.  I don’t really know anything, except that it’s a great place to paint, although the black top […]

Pompadour Panarama

I had a great time painting in rainy weather a few weeks ago – Pompadour Bluff,  a notable rock formation just outside Ashland, OR. They are separate paintings but were done in the same scale, from the same place, so they flow together.    Filed under: Landscape, painting, Paintings Tagged: 2014, art, fine art, landscape, […]

Plein Air Landscape Painting Workshop

Downtown Medford, by Sarah F. Burns

I’m gearing up for a landscape painting workshop in June, prepping my slide lecture and picking out great places to paint. I like my classes to be fun and relaxed while being focused and rigorous.

Filed under: Paintings, […]

This pear packing plant by First, Colver and C street is a great painting location.  Just a few blocks from my house, I run past it several times a week and keep seeing more good vantage points to paint from.  This is a warm up, I’m getting my feet wet for the outdoor painting season. […]
