Fertile Valley

This is my second painting from Hood River. My friends and I were at a park that I'm pretty sure is called Panoramic Point. I was especially inspired by the fields of growing things (orchards, I think?). There was TONS to choose from, but no perfect scene, so I mixed and matched different elements from different parts of the view. It makes me very afraid every time I do this, but I seem to get better each time, and so less afraid.

After we left Hood River there was a plein air competition there. My friend Kathleen won first place with this beautiful painting, done from (I think) the same place, on a different day. You go girl!

Oh WOW! So beautiful! Carol you are REALLY getting good that this landscape thing! (I'm a bit envious of your opportunities this year and how you've devoted your time to plein air.. I keep telling myself I'm gonna do that... ..as soon as...)
