Winter already?

On this rainy Fall day, I'm looking forward (and backward) to Winter.
Two 6" x 12" oil paintings, based on previous plein air pencil sketches and paintings, my favorite view of Mt. Hood from Mt. Tabor, when clouds break to reveal it in snowy majesty.

Sandy River

Another painting of the Sandy River at Dabney State Park, this one painted in my studio, a more intimate composition on a small canvas, 5" x 7".

Sandy River

It was an overcast morning at Dabney State Park on the Sandy River as I painted the sand bars and shallow water.  Then suddenly the sun was out, completely different light and colors, so I turned my easel around and painted the Stark Street Bridge for a second plein air painting.  Both are 9" x 12" in oil.
