October Morning Walk, 9" x 12" oil
Cooper Mountain October Afternoon, 11" x 14" oil
Back to Cooper Mountain Nature Park in Beaverton to paint plein air, this time as part of the Plein Air at Washington County event. This morning was cloudy and I set up along a path with views of the mountains beyond. The Nature Park is home to many creatures, some heard but unseen. A woman walking by shared an audio recorded minutes before of coyotes "singing". By the second painting in the afternoon, the clouds had not cleared and were threatening rain, so I painted quickly! Both paintings have been framed and will be part of the Plein Air Show and Sale at Pumpkin Ridge Ghost Creek Gold Club in North Plains, October 4, then one painting will go to the Sequoia Gallery in Hillsboro for the month of October.
