New Solo Show running through August 2015 for artist Edyta Salak


          150 E Main St, Hillsboro, OR 97123

About the approach to my portraits....

Since I use the minimal amount of line and subject matter, color plays a very important role in capturing the personality and individuality

of my client and model.  In this painting diptych,  Jackie's personality is as colorful and vibrant the scarves yet the determined and serious side to her is direct and purposeful. I think that came through with the pose and subdued background. - e.s. 

Enjoy one of my painting classes at the Hillsboro Cultural Center in Hillsboro Oregon.



Just a  little detail of the new ever growing ArtBAM Collection

Hospital and Institutional Art

One of the many honors I've had is creating art for various Hospitals and Institutions. Below is a work in progress for St. Josephs Providence Hospital.  I painted  a 35ft. mural of a seascape around the walls of the new MRI facility. The special part of this particular job was that I got to do it in memory of my sweet Mama who spent countless hours in bland tight little rooms gettng procedures without having anything nice to look at or distract the difficult times of battling cancer.  If I make one patient feel just a little comfort looking at some calming art then I have given myself a reason to paint, paint, paint from my heart.

    Green Roses Girl Opens the Show

    I am not sure if it was just the colors but while painting this particular painting I remember it had a very soothing and calming effect on me.  I still feel that sense when I look at her.  I wonder if that happens to others ?

    "Bella"s  of the Ball

    A dear friend chooses the painting "Bella" to share a smile with.

    Lovely Ladies

    It's always fun to see what people are drawn to at a showing.

    These three beauties fell for "RIO" at the Walters Gallery in Oregon.

    What a Way to Start the SHOW !

    This gorgeous bunch were waiting at the Gallery for me on Opening Night. WOW !  The evening hadn't even started and my stomach stopped doing flip-flops and started dancing for Joy when I saw them !  More photos of the evening to come after I catch my breath.  This photo captures the essense of how Grateful I feel.  Thank You D.
