Cold Day @ Tumalo Resevoir
I started out today to meet up with friends painting about an hour from my house. It was a sunny day and seemed like it would be mild. So I rejected carrying my fleece, or a warm hat. As I approached the turn off to the mountain site, I saw a particularly dark cloud, the wind picked up, and when I arrived I found it so cold that I had to drape an old army blanket around my shoulders and head! (A friend took pity and lent me her extra jacket...she planned ahead).
I am painting to enter:
Celebration Oregon, in honor of Oregon’s sesquicentennial.
You may download the prospectus on pleinairpaintersoregon.org
Entry deadline – July 16
Show October 1-31 at the High Desert Gallery in the new Oxford Hotel in Bend.
Not sure this little pochade is one I will enter. But I am becoming more fond of gray days...ones without the brilliant and predictable sunshine so often seen in plein air work.
