Peace in the Valley (24x30) o/c

This plein air painting will be in my show, "Summerland" opening September 6th at Brian Marki Fine Art in Portland, OR. 

I came across this scene in Banks, Oregon; a rural community west of Portland that butts up against the east side of the Coastal mountain range... It has a kind of northern California feel to it since I reshaped the trees a little once I got it back in the studio.

I have eucalyptus (which are rare up here) on the brain right now...should probably see a specialist about that...


  1. Bonsoir,
    Je suis heureuse après mes longues semaines d'absence de reprendre contact peu à peu avec les blogs...
    Une très très belle peinture remplie de lumière et une harmonie extraordinaire de couleurs.
    Gros bisous

  2. This sure does have that California feel to it. Perhaps I should take a second look at Banks before the fall sets in. I too miss Eucalyptus trees because of their variety and sometimes "Dr Suess" posturing.

  3. love all that sunlight and those shadows!
