Today's painting is one of a series I've been working on. Last April my husband and I spent a week in Bend,Oregon. It is a great time of year to visit because by the time we cross the mountains into the high desert of Central Oregon, we are water soaked, skin wrinkled, pale shells of our former selves. It is a delight to leave the drenching rains of Washington's coast and see a place where the sun comes out frequently and patches of snow still lay on the ground. This 8x10 inch oil painting was inspired by a ten-mile hike up the River Trail in the Dechutes National Forest. It was still cold and winter like, but we were amazed that we could be outside for an extended period of time, see beautiful landscapes, and not get wet. The painting SOLD at my Etsy Shop, but there are other original landscape paintings available at my Etsy Shop.
