Stream and Wildflowers, Mt. Hood

5 x 7 inches, oil on gessoed paper.
In the past few weeks I've set up and organized a painting area (not my studio, that's still an unfinished area in the basement) near the west-facing windows in the dining room. I've painted a couple 5 x 7s, such as this one, and feel that I've picked up where I left off many months ago.

This is spring on Mt. Hood, sometime in August. It was overcast. The red/orange flower is paintbrush but I don't remember what the others are. I do remember hiking past this precious little valley.

Just popped in to take a look at what might be new, and came across this beauty. My reaction was WOW! I like this painting and agree with Kay. I am ready for Spring and this painting invites the viewer in to take a swim in the beauty of this small valley. An excellent place to meditate.
Cheers Chris

i really enjoyed the paintbrush in utah. while surveying there my crew of archaeologists were following flagging that was the same color as the paintbrush flowers....which were everywhere for as far as the eye could see. we could have wander around in circles for days from one paintbrush plant to another. apparently the initial survey line was flagged before the paintbrush had begun to bloom--the best laid plans of mice and men...Anyway, they are very pretty plants.

Beautiful. Hopefully we will be able to end up in Northwest one of these days.
