This is an original 9″×12″ acrylic painting. My favorite spot to paint – the North Umpqua River at Swiftwater Park in Oregon. I made a demo video of the entire process of painting this one (edited and sped up a bit), including a description of my process. If you are interested it can be viewed on You Tube at this address:
and part 2 at
or just browse at for the title Umpqua Reflections.

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.

    Beautiful. As I am from the Umpqua Valley and have been to the North Umpqua it seems a million times, one of my most favorite places to be along with Crater Lake National Park. Beautiful work!!!
