Call of the Trail

Up on Mount Ashland this summer, I painted these beautiful Doug Firs standing like sentinels of the Pacific Crest Trail. Every summer, hundreds answer the call to hike the trail from Mexico to Canada, or at least some portion of it. Even if you can’t go this year, hang this painting in your entryway so […]

Many Marvelous Moons

The Oregon Coast inspired me to do a series of moons this winter, and I was thrilled when my favorite Florence shop, Resto-Arts, picked them up. Turns out cool, silvery moons are a hot seller! Get yours while they last!

Teacher and Student

Mother nature doesn’t think in terms of composition, color harmony or design values, but go on a hike in Oregon and you’ll find these artistic principles all around you. So, I try to learn from the master. This is one experiment I loved well enough to hang at my spot at the KB Gallery in […]

Ashland Paint Out: A Celebration of Arts and Parks

It’s wonderful to be back in Ashland among our thriving artistic community! On Saturday, I participated in Ashland Paint Out, a plein-air-painting competition (though it was all very convivial) that sent local artists out into North Mountain and Lithia parks. Our mission was to capture the landscape, colors and visions of these world-class parks and […]

Rocky

I painted these coastal scenes in plein air at the Oregon Coast through an annual event that artist Eric Sandgren sponsors every year. He conducts workshops and invites all plein air painters to come and join at the various locations. Painting with a group adds to the excitement and creates a camaraderie that transforms the usually solitary experience into […]

Sequoia National Park: Among the Giants

Sequoia National Park: Among the Giants Oil Painting by Stefan Baumann 12×18 Oil on Canvas Stretched on Wood Bars Framing Signed Lower Left – Baumann On Verso Among the Giants, Sequoia National Park by Stefan Baumann Artist’s Comments Journal: May 16 2006 Today I hiked along a steep old Indian trail that has a vertical relief of nearly 13,000 feet. The air is thin, but my hike is easy since the terrain is flat and interesting. Wild daises are abundant along with many other varieties of wild flowers. I sketched a family of old growth trees that captured the grand…

At Home with Art

One of the benefits of being an artist is that there’s never a lack of art to decorate with! A landscape painting on the wall is the best therapy for those of us who feel more at home in nature than indoors. I’ve also found that a still life can calm and inspire, and a […]

My Southwestern Sabbatical

I’ve temporarily relocated to Taos, New Mexico, primarily to plein air paint somewhere new and different.

It’s a big change for me. I’ve spent all of my life on the west coast and the past seven years in Oregon, and I love those places so much I thought I’d never leave.

But recent visits to […]
