The Oregon Coast has always been mesmerizing for me. I love the fog, but I'm still a sucker for a clear, crisp morning. I aspired to capture the delicate morning light as it caught the various shapes. I loved the way the soft, cool hills in the background contrasted with the warm colors in the mud and pier. The old pilings along the left side were once part of the original dock and are well over 100 years old, as they remind us of the old harbor beside the brand spanking new pier. This artwork is framed.  Without the frame, the painting is 16x20 inches.

Getting to Know David

Grounded in traditional realism, David Terry’s oil paintings capture figures and landscapes with remarkable clarity. The muted color palettes and fine brushwork that David employs express the essence of each scene–the mood, the weather, the characters. He is excited about creating paintings that will be future heirlooms, passed down through generations by their owners. “I am passionate about using only materials that will last,” says David. “I expect my paintings to be around 500 years from now. I stay in contact with materials experts and curators to make certain that my methods and materials are the best they can be.”
