Morning Sea

The wind was strong…..fog was lifting.  This was a beautiful beach, fairly isolated in southern Oregon.  10"x8"…graham oils on sourcetek linen panel…

The sand dollar and the dog

Commission, 12×42 oil on canvas   The boy's dog wanted to eat each and every single one of his sand dollars when the boy finally tried to draw the dog's attention to the gulls further down the beach. The dog had no clue at what and where he was supposed to look. The situation amused…

Tropical Medley

Silver, fruit, candlelight, and fabric — about the only thing missing from this medley of texture and color is water — but an artist can't have everything, I suppose. If I had tipped the teapot a bit I could have captured amber nectar, but I would have wound up with some mighty wet limes. Tropical…

LadyCamp

When the pioneers were heading to the promised land out west, one of the last hurdles to conquer were the Blue Mountains in what is now eastern Washington and Oregon. While the Blues do not have the high, rugged peaks of the Rockies, they're still no series of gentle hills, and getting over them to…

Amber Waves

Amber Waves (original oil painting on canvas, 24 x 30) merges and marries some of my favorite subject matter — water and rocks, with atmospheric perspective and refracted light tossed into the mix. Available at the Lawrence Gallery, Sheridan, OR,  Amber Waves celebrates the exuberance of the Central Oregon Coast.

Cascadia

I love waterfalls. They're generally hidden, require a bit of hiking to get to, and even when you know that they're close you always feel surprised when you stumble into their presence. Cascadia (original oil painting on canvas panel, 12 x 9) captures one of these gems tucked away in the Columbia River Gorge, on…

Left to the Fog

This is a truck parked on a farm in Tillamook, Oregon. I was draw to its character of algae and lichen that colonized the long forgotten vehicle. It was drawn with Staedtler Mars Lumograph graphite pencils on Fabriano Artistico hot press watercolor paper. http://patrickentenmann.com

On the Horizon

There are sections of beach along the Oregon Coast that stretch for miles, expanses of flat sand that a person can wander through without encountering another person. On the Horizon captures this glorious sense of solitude and serenity. On the Horizon (original oil seascape on canvas, 24 x 30) is available as an original painting…

Madonna and Toddler

Awarded and Award of Excellence at  the Best of America show by the National Oil and Acrylic Painter's Society, Madonna and Toddler is a contemporary twist on a timeless theme. The historic background of Hughes House, a pristinely preserved Victorian Mansion on the Oregon Coast, adds color, emotion, and depth. Original Oil on Canvas, 30…

Autumn Sail

Along the scenic Columbia River Gorge that forms the border between Washingon and Oregon, a lone sailboat takes advantage of an itinerant sun and a brisk breeze. Autumn Sail incorporates some of my favorite painting subject matter — sailboats, the rich orange and red colors that blaze the hillsides in the fall, and water. OIl…

Stonework

Cascading down a steep alpine hill in Oregon's Wallowa Mountains, the granite formations in Stonework emulate water in their movement, and yet the sheer size and weight of the rockery maintains a sense of solidity as well. Stonework is available as an original or for licensing purposes through OC Designer Source.
