Oct—Inspired Landscapes: Inner & Outer Visions,
Dorothy Freudenberg—Digital Media / David Kinker—acrylic

Dorothy Freudenberg takes her photography into new worlds using digital media to create her inner vision of the season. “Autumns shift asks us to release any burdens we’ve been carrying, in the same ways the trees release their leaves into the wind”, explains Dorothy. Her layered landscapes, in rich colors, capture this process of change and release.

Just finishing a summer of river guiding, David Kinker has been immersed in the beauty of rivers and canyons. According to David, “the reflection and rhythms of the river are inspirational to me. They have a language that is authentic and healing to us all—metaphor and symbols abound.” His new paintings embody this inspiration.

Nov—Marty Stewart—soft pastel / Helen Brown—watercolor—In Tumalo Art Co.’s November show “Earthly Delights”, Helen Brown and Marty Stewart show scenes from nature that delight the eye and also move the viewer to interpret these scenes as precious earthly assets we all need to protect. The show opens during the First Friday Gallery Walk Nov., 2 from 5-9pm.
Helen Brown’s current work is a form of batik in watercolor. She draws her images on Ginwashi rice paper, begins with a light, colorful wash of watercolor, and then protects the lightest areas by painting them with molten wax. The wax resists all subsequent layers of paint. After about 6-8 layers of painting followed by more wax, she irons out the wax leaving only a watercolor image on paper. The subjects in her November show range from mountain scenes in Central Oregon and Glacier National Park to her more familiar tree scenes.
From deep colorful canyons and vast meadows of flowers to trees and gentle creatures, Marty Stewart’s new work gives the viewer a rich assortment of scenes to enjoy. “Animals and birds proved to be nice additions to my usual landscapes.”, says Stewart. For Marty, painting has become a way to look deeply into the nature of things, whether landscape, figures, animals or abstract images, to see what can be learned there and shared.  She often paints en plein aire in Central Oregon or on extended camping trips throughout the West with her husband.
