Here is the photo of the painting that I was commissioned to create for the new Astoria Memorial Plain Tree Hospital now in process of completion. A select number of regional artists were requested to make work for the interior spaces along with Richard Rowland of Astoria to create a large anagama fired ceramic entry mural. –Jan
“My painting is an acrylic on canvas, 6ft 8in by 3ft 4in related to a visit to the Gorge Hotel up the Columbia River we had the pleasure to take a very tranquil anniversary at, and enjoy the river and gardens surrounding. It was just a reflection that stopped me there overhanging branches crossing over rocks under water under rocks quiet silence among the leaves arching form of the old stone bridge still to walk upon.” –Jan Shield

“It is my home, studio and forest preserve in Newberg, Oregon. It is an environment of thick fir and maple forest blanketed with lush ferns and punctuated with sun lit meadows.”
