Beatrice Rubenfeld settled in the Oregon Coast Range many years ago. Her compulsion to make art, combined with admiration for the beauty of the world around her is the incentive for her work. She paints in oil, a medium that lends itself to her versatile compositions. Her deep appreciation of nature is the inspiration for radiant plein air paintings. “I make a brief visual statement to contain the essence of an ephemeral moment.” Tiny vignettes often motivate ambitious, larger studio pieces. “Oil paint lends itself to almost limitless possibilities of expression. The medium is my muse.”
