I took this oil sketch to art discussion last week. It is inspired by an evening I enjoyed at the Tualatin Wildlife refuge. (Pretty much everywhere you look at Tualatin Wildlife Refuge....there is a painting). I am thinking about working this up into a larger painting. 

We got to hold our meeting on the patio of O'Connors. That was different! We had to raise our voices over the hum of the air-conditioner.... but it was still fun, as always. To see what everyone brought...go HERE.

Sometimes it is satisfying to paint a simple summer green tree. Better photo to come :)
