Original Pastel - 20" x 24"

I caught this view driving along Lower Bridge Road, not far from Rainshadow Organics Farm. It was a sunny winter day and the reflections in the water were stunning. This view look off to Grey's Peak toward Smith Rock. The still water gives me hope that we are moving beyond the disruption of the last couple of years into a new and calmer state.

 

Artist Statement:

Having lived in Oregon nearly all my life I feel blessed to be surrounded by the grandeur of a state that lends itself to being the source of endless inspiration for painting. Having done paper arts such as box making and calligraphy for a time, I started working in pastels in 2019 finding the medium to be very satisfying. I enjoy realism and like capturing nature as it appears to me.
