This is a painting I did behind the Kingstad Center at the Wetlands. It is just 5 x 5 and I put it in a frame today. I am thinking about adding it to the show at the Gorge White House. I will be driving my paintings there on Monday. Today I submitted my entries to the Hood River Plein Air Competition. Don't forget to do this--the deadline is Tuesday. (How to apply) I hope I get in! I've painted in the competition every year so far...but every year that I submit I get nervous not knowing if I will be accepted or not. Wish me luck!

I don't think you need luck, as these paintings are looking better than ever. These last few landscapes are really wonderful, confident, soft and yet strong, and really nice edges. So glad to see what you've been up to lately.
