Plein art artist Greta Lindwood.
Gretha Lindwood, a lifelong resident of the Pacific Northwest, cherishes the unique landscapes honed by water and light and delights in capturing beauty in pastels. By painting in the traditional plein air style and by using an impressionistic touch, Lindwood’s landscapes invite the viewer into the scene. These landscapes can bring to mind the feel of soft mist from a foggy morning, or the taste of a salty ocean breeze.

“Denise Fairweather does an excellent job of bringing unusual objects to her store. She features NW artists and encourages speakers. I am especially fond of her ‘ Paint and Sip’ classes. These introduce the public to art projects that can be completed in two hours while sipping on wine and talking with friends. Last Friday we worked with acrylics on canvas. Your artist guided us through the process of capturing the light, colors & movement in beach grass in a class March 25th. . Who would’ve thought that we would suddenly peel away some of our work!? What it revealed was astonishing … it’s when the Magic happened. Drop by the gallery and ask Denise to explain; maybe sign up for the next class. I haven’t had so much fun since I re-discovered the joys of riding a tricycle!”–Tina Sawyer
