Pam Greene Painting at Oswald West State Park at the Oregon Coast
|Pam Greene, who signs her work P.S. Greene,
understands the landscape as both a naturalist and artist. As a former botanist, she enjoys seeing the growth patterns and distribution of plant species, the subtle effects of soil water gradients, and the evidence of volcanic episodes and phases of erosion. Greene's visual translation of the land is fueled by an appreciation of these natural phenomena. Expressing the nature of nature in action is her ideal.
The subject matter for her oil paintings ranges from the vast, basalt filled Central Oregon desert, to the dramatic high contrast of red Ponderosa Pines in the snow, to the majestic cliffs and surreal Sitka Spruce of the North Oregon Coast.
This site is intended to give insight into the locations and inspiration behind the paintings and an overview of the artwork.
