“Into Plein Air,” is artist Roderick Smith’s interpretation of the best-selling novel, “Into Thin Air,” but instead of climbing the highest mountain in the world, he works hard to conquer Oregon scenes in an impressionistic style.

Smith will show 30 paintings of Portland’s industrial area,  bridges and the Oregon Coast.
The paintings range from tiny—6 inches by 8 inches—to moderate in size—30 inches by 40 inches. Prices are moderate too, from $400 to $1,400.

“I paint directly from nature, attempting to capture the spontaneity of the moment while constantly searching for a balance between the objective aspects of the forms I see and my emotional reaction to them.”
