"Golden Hills", 8 x 10 In, Oil on Museum Board
This was painted near The Dalles looking north across the Columbia River on a warm day last August during the Pacific Northwest Painting Competition in Hood River. The Columbia River is so iconic for anyone growing up in the Northwest--as very young children we learned about the "Mighty Columbia" and sang "Roll On, Columbia Roll On." Its hard to remember exactly where all the imagery comes from--the grandiosity and the mystery of such a river and it has never really occurred to me before to even ask the question. But since childhood it has included all the stories of Lewis and Clark and the Grand Coulee Dam and the Columbia Gorge and the Vantage Bridge. This is a simple painting--a sketch of a moment on the River.
