I did a small painting of this a few weeks ago (Thompson Mill Pond) and liked it so much I wanted to paint it larger.

This painting was started on the site of Rohner’s Warehouse on Peoria Road. It is the second painting that I have posted from this site.  This is the view of their neighbors looking north.

I still have to paint their dog :)

This is a lovely little Cavalier King Charles Spaniel who loves everyone.  She has amazingly dark and sincere eyes which I tried to capture.

I always start with a sketch to familiarize myself with the subject and it is a good thing I did.  I elongated her face a bit too much.  The sketched pup still looked sweet but she wouldn’t have recognized her reflection.  Not sure that she would once the painting was completed either, come to think of it.

The photo reference was generously given to me by Deborah Peterson.  Thanks Deb!

This painting was started on the site of Rohner’s Warehouse on Peoria Road.  It is a very scenic spot right on the Willamette River.  I started two paintings there, did a number of sketches and even took photos of their dog!  There will be more paintings to come.

THANK YOU!
I wanted to thank everyone for coming out to see my work at the Clothesline Sale of Art yesterday.  I had great comments, sales and conversations.   I sincerely thank you all!

I know that some of you who live too far away would have liked to be there and wished me well.  Thank you as well.  It helps!

Another painting started on site at Boston Mills State Heritage Site in Shedd, OR.  I stood on the road bridge to get this scene and was amazed at how much traffic there was on this small country road.

I think I might create a large painting from this one.
