My painting buddy, Victoria Biedron, and I went over to Golden Gardens on Tuesday afternoon to do a little painting. It was cold, but so, so beautiful. It was a delight to be outside.
With this painting, I tried to repeat the lavender-blue in the sky, the Coburg hills in the distance, and the pond toward the front of the painting. The fields are mostly a golden color, but bits of green are beginning to show through.
On Monday, my painting buddies, Patti McNutt and Victoria Biedron, and I drove south to the little lumber town of Drain, Oregon to do some plein air painting. We found an ideal spot to paint on the bridge over Pass Creek - the little creek that runs through the town. It's still winter here, but there was a hint of spring in the air. It was a joyful day.
