I love the Oregon coast. This particular day was still. The water surface was like glass. The colors jumped out. Everywhere I looked I wanted to make a painting. After much wandering around, I finally settled on this scene. The reflections, colors, and the variety of textures and shapes for me summed up the most important elements that I was finding so beautiful. 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.”
