9X12 Acrylic on canvas. This one was started on location, unfortunately they turned on the fountain in the middle of the pond halfway through! No more reflections! Fortunately I had taken a picture so I was able to finish it up at home :)

I’ve been painting since 2002. I was captivated right away and have only put down my brush since when I’m forced to! Darn bills anyway :/ I also make demo videos and host my online teaching website. I’ve lived in beautiful Oregon for the last few years. The stunning landscape converted me almost entirely to a landscape painter! More recently I have moved to Portland and am in love with the history, energy and people of this beautiful city.

    Very nice country scene here. I especially like the reflections, so I am glad you
    took a picture! I think they are doing that with ponds to aerate the water
    for the fish.

  • Thank you Marriet, very kind!
