Gorge at Crown Point 9" x 12"
Spent a wonderful day in June plein air painting at Crown Point looking out at the Columbia River Gorge. The clouds looked ominous, but the rain waited until the following day. It's been that kind of June, some clouds, rain, then 90 degrees, even 100! I don't paint outside in the rain or hot sun, I do like to enjoy myself! And that day was lovely, lots of friendly tourists asking questions and taking photos of themselves in front of the fabulous view. A gentleman from Austria was of the opinion that the Danube might be more beautiful than the Columbia, but to me, the Columbia Gorge is one of the most beautiful places in the world and I never get tired of painting there.
