oil on Gessoboard
This painting was from several photos I took on the way to the airport in Eugene Oregon after the week in Carol Marine's workshop.
Traveling somewhere new is such a visual treat. Every place has it's own personality and paintable views. In Oregon I was mesmerized by the fog and it was a welcome change for me to feel a chill in the air. And with all the moisture the grass had this lovely green color. I had seen these sheep on the way from the airport and on my way to leave I just had to stop and take some pictures. One thing I'm working on right now is - using what I know to design my painting so as to improve on what I see in nature, not just copy what I see.
