See one of our pandemic projects at the library in Manzanita, Oregon

August 2021


These little paintings are our personal souvenirs portraying places we have visited and enjoyed. We are both art professionals, but these are not what we usually exhibit. These are quick studies, painted in oil, most are on simple, birch panels. 


We hope by showing them we might inspire others to try documenting their own observations. We find that when we take the time to really look, and endeavor to capture that impression, it makes for a much more memorable experience then merely snapping another photo.


Hope you enjoy them,

Rae and Mark Mahaffey

Wheeler, Oregon
