329. Summer Gold

'Summer Gold'
6" x 6"
Oil on gessoboard 

I live in an evergreen part of the world, and it's still amazing to me to have green grass all winter long. All that lusciousness makes gray, cloudy winters completely tolerable, - enjoyable in fact! (Maybe because I'm still comparing it to the frigid Minnesota winters of my childhood. 😉) 

Green, gray, white; I appreciate all the shades of winter, - but the warm hues of summer are my favorite. This little scene is August in our neck of the woods. Golden fields, hazy purple ridges, blue skies... Aah, summer. ❤

328. Goodnight Clouds


'Goodnight Clouds'
6" x 6" oil on gessoboard

I've painted this scene a few times over the years, and I wish I could say it gets easier.
Hopefully the end result is a little better each time. :)

327. Cock-a-doodle-doo

A scene from the Columbia River dikelands near our town.
The wide Columbia River is somewhere off in the distance, and on this particular early morning, a huge bank of fog and clouds lingered heavily over it. 
I love the dramatic backdrop it made for this sweet little barn; delightfully lit up by the first rays of sun.

Hi friends! Long time no see!
This is a little scene from my sister's yard a couple of summers ago.
I'm looking forward to many nights like these ahead. :)
