La Casa de Sabor in Stevenson will be hosting a two artist show of Baja, Calif., paintings during the month of June
The artists, both painters who like to paint "en plein air" (outdoors), traveled in Baja and met on several occasions to camp and paint together.
Linda Jo Hunter from Stevenson will be showing her new oil painting inspired by the clear air, bright colors and beaches. Hunter's paintings focus on water, surfing and boats. Hunter has participated in the Artist of the Gorge annual show since 2004.
Her artist's journey started in Alaska where she was a brown bear viewing guide taking folks out to watch the bears feed on salmon. Bears were her first subjects and she continues to seek wild scenes to paint where ever she travels.
Jan Muir, from Husum, will be showing both oil and watercolors. Her paintings focus on the unique scenes of small rural life in Baja and the colors and textures of the plants as well as beach scenes. Muir has worked as a professional graphic artist for eight years for an environmental interpretive company in Trout Lake.
She also lived in Alaska where she established her own graphics company. She enjoys working in the outdoors and also focuses on the colors and unique light of our Pacific Northwest climate. More of her art can be seen at the Columbia Center for the Arts in Hood River.
