Little Tremors ~ Lisa Onstad, 2018
Acrylic, 24 kt gold leaf on panel, 12 x 13 inches

Little Tremors, a piece from my new body of work Earthquake Weather is hanging this month at Waterstone Gallery. During the month of June I’ll be exhibiting 21 new paintings at the gallery. These vibrant acrylic paintings were inspired by a trip I took to the John Day Fossil Beds National Monument last fall. I was struck by the rich, natural palette of reds, ochres and blues of this majestic and mysterious landscape.

Hello Again!

It’s been over a year since my last blog post…a year filled with art adventures, studio days and new work. I’m hoping to post some catch-up stories, but I have some news that can’t wait! I am very pleased to announce that I have joined Waterstone, an artist run gallery located in Portland’s Pearl District. The gallery has just moved to a larger space and I am looking  forward to painting BIG.

New Work

Finished – 30″ x 40″ acrylic painting on museum board mounted on wood panel.  Whenever I am starting a new series it’s always a struggle to get the first painting finished. I am often unsure of what direction I want to go in and there are many starts and stops.  I am excited to keep working and see where this painting leads me.
