The Oxford Hotel welcomes landscape artist
JANET FROST as JUNE'S Featured Artist
Inspired by Central Oregon’s landscape, Janet Frost’s oil paintings are her impressions of the natural beauty and atmosphere that make this area unique.
“I have always been fascinated by how light can transform the landscape,” says Frost. “As the sun and clouds move through the sky, colors change, atmosphere changes, and the whole mood of a scene can move from being mundane to magical. I want to capture some of those special moments in my paintings,”
Much of Frost’s work includes images of water. Whether it’s a scene along one of Central Oregon’s iconic rivers, a waterfall, or a quiet lake, the water in her paintings represents a source of life,
rejuvenation, and personal reflection. “Water tells a story,“ explains Frost. "It conveys the energy of the moment to the painting’s viewers, and I hope it also lets them into some of my inner thoughts as I worked through the painting.”
Frost is an award-winning artist who received her degree in fine art from the University of Redlands and has continued her painting education through numerous classes and workshops over the years. She is a member of the High Desert Art League, Oil Painters of America, and Plein Air Painters of Oregon (PAPO).
The Oxford Hotel is located at 10 NW Minnesota Avenue in Bend, Oregon
