My inspiration for “This Place” is obliviously the beach and figures on the coast.
This genre of painting has been my muse for over 30 years.
It started when my children were
little and continue to this day, now painting my grandkids as well as other people.
I feel very
blessed to have spent so much time on the Oregon coast.” Victoria Brooks

“I love the outdoors and favor the direct approach of working in the open air, using all my senses to capture landscapes and emotional moments of people in natural settings. Working outside means that I have to follow the effects of sunlight, wind, and weather.” VB
