Wildflower Meadow, Mt. Hood

7 x 11 inches, oil on primed archival matboard.
Here's a scene of purple Lupine and other as-yet unidentified flowers in bloom at timberline elevation on Mt. Hood.

Sharon, perhaps you can help identify...?

That's the summit of Mt. Hood, partially visible through the clouds.

A slightly larger panel, 7 x 11 inches. Really a study for a larger planned panorama of this same meadow, from a different angle.

I have a series of Mt. Hood and other Oregon landscapes either in the works or planned. I'll continue doing small studies but really want to make larger paintings, since I have the space for it now. Currently in process is another 24 x 36 Mt. Hood landscape. I hope to make some progress on it this week.

Yesterday I had a booth at the Alberta Art Hop on Alberta St. here in NE Portland. It was in the 90s, but was a fun scene with a typically wierd Portland parade, music, and lots of people enjoying our first blast of hot summer. We went from cold and wet to very hot almost overnight.

Cool painting! It's funny my pastor has the same name as you. I like your blog. Would you like to do a link exchange? I’m a fellow artist trying to build my ranking by getting more reciprocal links. If interested please email me at:

Just beautiful Mark. Your landscapes are better and better. This one reminds me of the Aspens painting in that it is both loose and detailed...and the effect is inspired. I love it. You are on the right keep doing whatever it is you are doing.

I am working is spectacular scenery every day but I could never capture it even with a camera.

I check in here at least once a week but haven't (until now) taken time to add a comment. I echo Kay's sentiments exactly -- especially the "...both loose and detailed..." comment. I look forward to seeing the larger work.

It is a pretty scene of some wildflowers growing with Mt Hood in the back ground.
