Painting: Oil on Canvas.
Inspired by a class I created called "painting from sketches" the idea of which was to paint directly from the sketch that was made from nature. Not looking at the scene but rather working only from the sketch with the idea in mind that the finished work should retain the freshness of the sketch. Here a vast expanse of Oregon countryside opens up before us while, in the foreground, several horses are resting on a road that winds downwards into the valley below.
