Our artist for the month of May is Abbas Darabi. He is a landscape oil painter, living in Eugene. The essence of his work comes from the beauty of nature, and his motivations is to capture all the richness of nature on canvas to bring calm and a sense of peace to viewers. Abbas has shown his work at Living Gallery in Ashland, and at The Watershed and Opus VII in Eugene. His paintings can also be seen at Peace Health Hospital in Vancouver, Washington. Come down this Friday and check out Abbas's tall and wide oil paintings!
