Eastern Columbia River Gorge - SOLD

Someone left the comment that I had not written what I was thinking when I painted this one. I was thinking mostly about values - to make objects/forms come forward and go back into space. Atmosphere, the hills far away in the desert are a muted grayed down blueish, and as they come forward they get more color. It's way too cold here to paint outside, so I did this painting from a photo I took during the spring from the Mosier Tunnels Trail. I just felt like I really needed to paint a landscape for a change. And I had just gotten a new brush that is an inch wide, that I was trying out.
