Our show opens Feb 7.  I will have to miss the opening cause I’m heading to San Francisco for a anatomy workshop (involving cadavers!) at BACAA.

More Flowers for February Show

Albertons floral section here we come – I’m pumping out the floral paintings for my two person show at Ashland Painters Union.  I thought I was going to do a floral show last September and use natural garden and field flowers, but it’s hot house instead.  I do love carnations, so I’m going to pick […]

Preview Piece Two

Whaleshead Beach, plein air painting by artist Sarah F Burns of Ashland, Oregon

I promised a preview of my show that opens Friday and here is part two.   We had some brutal smoke from wildfires this year (we get it every summer but this year was the worst since 1987 apparently) and many of us cut out and head for the coast when it gets bad. The […]

The slow lane

If I were still living in Boise, where I grew up, I’d definitely drive to Ashland, Oregon, but alas. Love the humble title of the still life shown above: Copy of Fantin Latour Roses. The usual unerring values, and the color so subtle, it’s easy to miss how good it is. Can’t find any of […]
