South Jetty County Park

by on Jun.28, 2011, under 30 Artists 30 Parks

South Jetty County visitors area is an immediate spot to see the gorgeous and rocky Bandon Beach and the jetty extending out into the Pacific. I was in awe of the scenic coast and happy for such easy access to the coastal beach sands. After taking in all the western view, I decided to make an 180 degree turn. The eastern view was a wonderland of texture of worn rocks, longtime unused pilings, quiet inland waters leading to the western edge of Bandon, backed by evergreen covered rolling hills with a quiet blue sky, and finally topped by clouds and fog banks rumbling in from the Pacific Ocean.

It exemplifies the true nature of harshness that gives the area and its people a strong character. I understand more the title of “Bandon-by-the-Sea.”

Coquille Point in Bandon, Oregon

by on Jun.24, 2011, under 30 Artists 30 Parks

Coquille Point is located on a cliff overlook at the west end of 11th St. in Bandon. Gazing out over the vast Pacific is a staggering view of Bandon Beach with jutting rocks, Elephant Rock, and the fleeting motion of coastal birds and gulls. It is a perfect setting for inspiration!

Bastendorff is an awe inspiring Park! It overlooks the gorgeous and stunning Pacific Ocean and Southwestern Oregon’s rocky and sandy Coast. This view is from one of their campsites overlooking the public playground & picnicing areas and then, out over the cliff to the ocean below.

Participating with ’30 Parks by 30 Artists’

by on Jun.22, 2011, under 30 Artists 30 Parks

Just joined an exciting local summer art participation project, “30 Parks by 30 Artists.” Thirty local artists visit thirty Coos County Parks at their leisure and create plein air art at each site. The project is funded by a grant from the Coos County Cultural Coalition and is spearheaded by Coquille artist, SL Donaldson whose blog and Facebook page keep running updates and photos.

My first is of Bradley Lake Boat Ramp south of Bandon, OR
