The reason I have not been blogging lately is that along with Vicki Shuck (you should see her work! http://www.vickishuck.com/about/) I have been traveling around the state to get photo reference and paint rural areas for an upcoming show. To know more about this show go to Reflections On a Way of Life in the arts works section.
This painting is of Mt. Hood as it stands above like an overseeing deity above Hood River and the orchards.
