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:

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.
