After a bit of an unintentional break from painting, I’ve finally gotten a couple of new ones done. When I haven’t painted in a while I tend to do something different…this acrylic painting of a heron up in the top of a tree with dramatic lighting has been in my head for awhile. I took the photo a couple of years ago and imagined the heron with billowy, just before sunset clouds behind it. The name “Omen” came to me too. Sometimes the name starts the process.
This small pastel painting of a central oregon landscape—Mt. Jefferson shining in the last rays of the sun with sheep grazing peacefully in the high desert—captures the beautiful light at the end of day.
It’s up in the “Small Treasures” show at Tumalo Art Co. through December….come see!
