My name is Rhett Regina Owings and I am a California artist who enjoys painting landscapes, flowers, birds and other subjects. I am inspired by the beauty I see around me. My favorite mediums to work in are oils, pastels and acrylics, but I sometimes dabble with watermedia. After graduating from San Francisco State with a major in Art and a minor in History, I taught Art and World History in public school for many years before retiring in 1999 to work at my art.

Over the years I have studied with many artists including Susan Sarback, Dean Packer, Chuck Waldman, Gil Dellinger, Reif Erickson, Brian Blood, Ray Roberts, Peggy Kroll Roberts, Richard Lindenberg, and other fine artists. I have won many awards at local shows and my work can be found in private collections around the USA, England and Australia.

I am a member of the Valley Sun Catchers, Central California Art Association, the Central Coast Art Association, and Monterey Bay Plein Air Painters Association.

My work can be found on this website, Daily Paintworks, my Blog,
the Tracy Grand Art Gallery, the Mistlin Art Gallery (Modesto)
and in various shows around California.


Embellished Paper Crane






I also love to work with paper and fold paper cranes
which I embellish with beads and other pretty things.
And I also enjoy working with beads and making jewelry.
Please enjoy my website.
