This is a 9×12 original acrylic painting on stretched canvas. I started this one on location at Little River near Glide Oregon. It was a crystal clear fresh morning, the sun rising higher and warming me up as I painted. Perfect day! The original is available in my Etsy shop:

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.
