If you have read my blog before you will know that I admire the work of William Wray (www.williamwray.com). Today, I had completed painting (touching up yesterday's plein air painting, and finishing a barn painting for my Overlooked Oregon Series. Then I came across a photo of an abandoned trailer in front of an abandoned gas station outside of the Dalles...I had taken this photo last fall. so I thought I would "start" a painting...3 hours later, I think I am finished. It is a tribute to both William Wray and to Overlooked Oregon--places not likely to be memorialized in paint.
