Come to the EcoCenter for this chance to see the beautiful plein air work of Robin Dosskey in her exhibit, “Shoreline Inspirations”! Admission is free and light refreshments will be provided at the reception.
About the artist:
Robin Dosskey lives in Mountain View, California. She retired from teaching after 34 years. She has been learning to paint landscapes, in her studio or plein air since 2016 with her instructor, Brigitte Curt. She paints landscapes in oil, pastel or watercolor depending on the effect she wants to capture. She loves to brush layers of thick paint or pastels on the canvas using radiant colors.
She is a native Californian. Forever awestruck by the natural beauty here, her themes reflect her love of California’s incredible landscapes and bird life. She takes hundreds of photographs, but often begins a painting plein air, then finishes it in the studio. She is happiest when visitors comment, “Wow! Your painting is much better than your photograph!”
She has showed paintings in Los Altos History House as well as Los Altos Library. She has held Silicon Valley Open Studio sales in Mountain View and Palo Alto. She creates greeting cards from her paintings and donates the card profits to many environmental groups. In the fall of 2019 she showed work at Gallery 111 in Capitola.
In this collection of mostly plein air work, I focused on loosening my brush strokes, layering colors to keep transparency, and adding harmonious colors to enhance the changing light. The winter storms of 2019 provided perfect subject matter with days of fascinating cloud formations!
I endeavor to capture scenes that will invite viewers to appreciate our amazing coastline, bay and marshlands. I hope to inspire people to protect our unique California bird life and fragile wilderness.
