Our Pacific Ocean has inspired our visiting and local plein air artists to paint environmental landscapes and seascapes. Their fine art work show the interesting colors and land formations that are created by ocean wave action and show first impressions of our changing environment along the South Orange County Coast by walking and painting the land... a document of our beautiful natural planet, Earth. OceanviewGallery Artists provide Ocean and Habitat Awareness education and research and conduct art education instruction to spread the word about protecting our Oceans. We can make a difference...Barb Ross
"... the only thing we have to preserve nature with is culture; the only thing we have to preserve wildness is domesticity" (Kastner:17)

"Everybody can be great because anybody can serve... you only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love." - Martin Luther King, Jr.
Painting in Plein Air is a unique experience that places the Artist in a changing open air environment bringing about spontaneous opportunities to closely observe nature in its every changing environmental condition...the illusion of light is continuously changing, the sun is moving from day to night, the wind is at your back or in your face, and of course... the ever changing subjects including our ocean. So, to reap the rewards of this unique experience - just do it - jump in and bring your paint brushes, watercolor pencils or pastel crayons and then with a sense from your soul - just paint what you see, hear and feel. Join our group of Plein Air Artists for a Green Environment(AGE) from the South Orange County Coast (SOCC)and have a fun day of painting. Paint an Impressionist Landscape or Seascape ... and discover yourself.
