Oak Trees On The Edge of the Desert

Oaks in the Desert :: 12in x 48in :: kiln dried birch cradled panel
I just love the variety of climate zones we have here in Oregon. To the East we have desert with Oaks and grasses, and to the West, we have waterfalls and a variety of Fir and Evergreen Trees. This painting is of the desert landscape with oaks in the foreground, one of my favorite subjects to paint. I painted this on kiln dried birch panel, with two coats of shellac. It's fun to look at in person, because I left some of the birch showing through the painting. You can view it if you are in the Hood River area, at the Columbia Gorge Family Medical Center.

What a beautiful piece, Cathleen, and it must be especially impressive in person at that size!
