6"x6 | oil on linen panel

​I guess I forgot to post this one! It is a plein air painting from this summer, when we had the PNW Plein Air event, it was one of my paintings from the show at Maryhill Museum of Art 2016. This was painted at the Ranch, overlooking a ravine created by a creek that runs through the ranch, down to the Columbia River. Oaks and other vegetation grow around the wet ravine, in the Washington high desert.
