works for March show at Earth & Vine Baker City, Oregon
This is one of my favorite views in the Baker Valley. We are looking up Pine Creek at Rock Creek Butte. I love hay fields and this one works nicely to lead you into the mid-ground of the painting. I am always challenged when portraying the Elkhorn Mountains. Expressing their mass and presence is just not easily done..I can attest to in many earlier paintings! I am happy with this piece and will be showing it in Baker City the month of March. It is also available at my 'dailypaintworks.com' site.
This is a chalk pastel painting on sanded pastel paper. 9.5x 14 inches (unframed)
