Exhibit runs through the end of May. The first solo show of the year at Tumalo Art Co. features new works by David Kinker.

With “Over Water”, Kinker dives into his entrancement with all things water.

A painting looking straight down into water by David Kinker
David Kinker’s 24 30 painting, “Hyptomist”, looks directly down into swirling water.


An avid rafter and river guide and adventurer on wild rivers from the Pacific Northwest to South America and beyond, Kinker has learned water. As a painter, he is able to describe the mesmerizing movement and atmosphere, and colors and feeling of water, bringing it to the viewer as a felt experience. A colorist by nature, Kinker’s painting are the perfect focal point to a room.


A sunny fall day on Oregon's Metolius River by David Kinker
“Doubletree”, is a 24 x 36 acrylic painting of Oregon’s Metolius River in the autumn, with a snow-covered Mt. Jefferson in the background.


Many of the works in this show are large. Kinker also makes plein air study paintings in the field and these are available. Well-known for murals across Central Oregon, he was recently commissioned to do murals and original paintings for the Partners in Care facility in Bend, along with many private residences. Multi-talented, Kinker makes the frames for all of his paintings, mixing exotic woods, many that are reused materials, to complement his paintings.
