Central Oregon

Just got back today from a 10-day trip to Central Oregon.  The colors and shapes of the landscape is so different from those of Western Washington.  It was fun to venture into the wild and paint. I took hundreds of photos for future reference and can't wait to get started.  This 5x7 inch painting was painted on location in the Dechutes National Forest.  Then, a few days ago we hiked at Smith Rock and I took well over a hundred photos in just a few miles.  My next efforts will probably focus on some of those photos.

Lovely painting. Don't you just love those trips that leave you with great reference pics! I bet you'll really have fun with them.

Thanks, Vanessa. You're right--I am having fun sorting through the references. A great way to remember a vacation!
