About the artist.
Jan Shield, Professor Emeritus of Art at Pacific University, creates art at his Dancing Trees Sanctuary. “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.” Through his paintings, Jan Shield shares a deep regard for Oregon. His art is a comment on naturalism, environment, light, space and at times, symbolism. The beautiful CMH-OHSU Collaborative selected art from Jan Shield to support the healing environment in their new facility in Astoria.

I have several pictures of the Rockaway Beach home we stayed in. I took some pics of the rock formations, sea grass, , and rocks to give a feel for where we were.
