I went out to the Deschutes River today, and I got two paintings out of this session at the river. I wore my cowgirl boots, because there really are rattlesnakes at this desert river site. I don't know if this is rattlesnake time of year, but one can't be too careful… Anyway, there was a beautiful handmade boat (Lamiglas Fish With Confidence) pulled up on the edge of the river in the sand, so I could not resist painting it - as quickly as I could, because you never know when the owners will come back and want to take their boat out fishing! So I got the painting below, finished just in time. The owner was very kind to give me about 5 more minutes to finish the painting. Love the boat, and how the painting turned out too!
