I loved the idea of a very neutral but fun painting, with surprises in the shadows. The Autumn Beauty variety of sunflower and the Stumptown Cold Brew Coffee dark brown bottle seemed like a good combination.

#889 The Dalles Mt Ranch

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.

#884 Oranges and Neutrals

6"x6" | oil on ampersand gessobord

I'm not sure if I can capture the subtle neutrals in this painting in a photo. It was fun to get back to doing a still life painting again during the weekly class. I used ampersand gessobord, as a substrate, and just had a wonderful time creating so many neutrals to complement the orange in this still life painting.
