Crown Point, oil 16" 20"

A re-do of one of my favorite scenes, Crown Point from the Women's Forum along the Old Columbia River Highway.  Originally painted in acrylic several years ago, I painted over this time in oil, with softer edges and the more subtle colors that oil points produce, with more of a glow.

 Fall Day, oil 6" x 6"
 Fall to Winter, oil 8" x 8"
Winter Trees, oil 4" x 7"

Experimenting with palette knife painting, so much fun!  It's very sculptural, pushing and carving shapes into the paint, creating patterns and layers, very like the layers of bare branches seen in the winter landscape.
