Today I joined the Hood River painters at Catherine Creek, WA. A whole batch of people showed up and fanned out all over hill and dale. Karen, Donna and I liked a view looking down the Gorge into the East. What a perfect day for painting outside! I love the Catherine Creek area! It just didn't hurt that it was a perfect sunny day...and no wind. Aren't we lucky we live so near the gorgeous Gorge??
