I painted this small study on location at Cannon Beach Oregon. I'll be in Cannon Beach at Northwest by Northwest Gallery on Saturday May 5th at 11:30 am for an informal talk about my work. Hope to see you there!
This apple tree is a remnant from an old orchard on the Jorgensen Ranch here in Glenwood,WA. Though technically not "wild"- it's become that way from years of neglect. This "neglect" has allowed it to achieve a wonderful and graceful gesture.
Welcome to my blog. My name is Eric Jacobsen. I currently reside in Glenwood, WA. I have lived out West since 1998 and have found the rugged and pristine NW landscape to be a limitless supply of inspiration for me. From the arid high desert to the rugged coastline and the many and varied places in between, I endeavor to capture the movement of light over the immense and varied topography we know as the great Northwest. Most recently my creativity has been focused close to home in the bucolic Glenwood valley. I hope you like the work shown here.
