Jean Schwalbe is one of the Northwest's most renowned impressionistic painters of Oregon's most famous landmarks including many rivers and seascapes. Her wonderful, warm colors painted in red, gold, burnt sienna, orange and purple mingle with her blues, greens and browns to enhance and emphasize her strong and unique visions of Oregon. One of Jean's goals is to paint every river in Oregon.
Diane Lewis paints pastel paintings and oil paintings that are realistic and traditional. Living in Eugene, Oregon, she has painted a series of pastel paintings of the rivers surrounding the area. Painting plein aire oil paintings in the Willamette Valley has also been an inspiration for Diane including a large oil painting of Lost Lake with Mt. Hood in the background.
