Plein Air

 Sauvie Africa, 9"x12" oil
 Sauvie Africa Reflections, 9"x12" oil
There is a place on Sauvie Island down a gravel road and through a cattle gate called "Africa" because it seems so remote and wild.  Instead of wildebeests, cattle graze and gather under shady trees.  The weather was cool and cloudy, a welcome relief from recent heat.  Light stayed constant throughout the day, easier for plein air painting.  I painted two studies, both on 9" x 12" canvas panels.
