Hello, and Happy Halloween to all my friends and collectors and collector friends.
A sneak peak of some of the oil paintings that I have been working on for the upcoming Stormy Weather festival in Cannon Beach at Dragon Fire Gallery. http://michaelorwick.blogspot.com/2008/09/oregon-coast-gallery-gets-stormy-in.html
On November 7 to 9, the north Oregon coast town of Cannon Beach celebrates the early days of winter with the enormous Stormy Weather Arts Festival. DragonFire Gallery's portion of that citywide event is three days of color, light, music, food and conversation. An enormously talented trio of oil painters makes up our featured artists this year. Michael Orwick, Tracy McEwen and Christopher Bibby will eat, drink and sleep their medium over the weekend, appearing at the quick draw on Friday night http://michaelorwick.blogspot.com/2008/08/one-of-my-most-favorite-art-events-of.html and then spending Saturday and Sunday in the gallery, demonstrating and chatting about their techniques.

"Experience that “certain slant of light” Michael Orwick brings to his work. Michael fuses a fierce impressionistic talent with modern sensibility to paint Oregon landscapes that shimmer with light. He celebrates the natural beauty around us as only a native-born son can."

My art hints at a story and then invites you to finish the narrative. My style has been called Inspired Expressionism, which combines impressionistic brush strokes and a touch of realism to create the atmosphere and lighting woven into my work.
