9X12 Acrylic on Canvas. I took the reference photo one day when I was out plein air painting. I followed a little path down to the river. Didn’t notice until later that is was covered in poison oak! I was lucky and didn’t get it though!

From the first moment I picked up a brush I was captivated! I only put down my brush when I’m forced to! I also make demo videos and host my online teaching website. I’ve lived in beautiful Oregon for the last few years. First in Southern Oregon where the stunning landscape converted me almost entirely to landscape painting. Now I live and paint in Portland and have fallen in love with the history, energy and people of this beautiful city.

    Often times painting rocks can be a real challenge, you demonstrated your wonderful talent with this one. Both skillfully and beautifully painted Karen.
