Journeys • Mixed Media Paintings At Stash

Creating my art begins with an experience, emotion, and inspiration and travels onward from there. Layer upon layer, the destination comes closer until the journey is complete.

Below is a selection of my mixed media pieces now on display and for sale at Stash in Corvallis, Oregon. March to the end of April. For information on each piece, email me at rachelurista@gmail.com or contact Stash in Corvallis.

Its officially Spring in the Valley!! Flowers are blooming all over, new leaves are breaking through the soil and bursting off of branches! Who can’t be inspired and affected by it all?  🙂

Check out these 12x12s and 20x20s at Sonia’s Shop STASH downtown. Take a peek in the store window, you’ll see her store is in bloom too!

Already can’t wait to continue with these bright lovely textural pieces!

Whats next? The Rhodies, Camelias, Tulips? Whats your favorite flower?

Spring Canvases




4″ x 4″ each, Acrylic and Ink

I’ve been working away in my new garage studio and now the pieces are finally out in the sun and for sale at  STASH downtown Corvallis!

As plants and flowers all around me begin to bloom, my eyes soak in all the colors and textures. I love creating these tiny worlds, all the color and feeling of a spring day, contained in a 4″ square!

I am working on more sizes, variety and magnets!  Until then, I hope these provide you a little sunshine and spring color on  those grey days between the sunny ones!


La Pine Dancer Painting

Every painting starts with an experience… this one started in Bend this summer, while on a visit with my Aunt. This point is somewhere between Bend, OR and LaPine, OR. We took a new back road and ended up here! What a great surprise!

Though the real scene was more vibrant and bold, I painted from the calm serene feeling I had from the bend in the river. Though the water was almost at a standstill, the tree here seemed to be full of movement… bending slightly over the cliff to the river, it seemed to be frozen in a modern dance pose… The twisting grace of the roots and the texture of the trunk fascinated me!

The painting is acrylic and modeling paste, fiber paste and raised paper. Below are some photos of the process of the painting. I always enjoy reviewing how a painting progresses, and would like to share it with you too.


Acrylic & Mixed Media, 8″x24″ each panel.  SOLD

Fall Candy Colors

The response to the small square paintings I have at STASH has been great! They are so much fun to make too! A new batch is at STASH now!

The colors remind me of this Japanese candy I used to have as a kid- Konpeito!
