A Day On The Owyhee

Day On The Owyhee              8" x 10"               oil
This is a bright spring day on the Owyhee River in southeastern Oregon. I love the red rocks and sage of the landscape and emphasized that here. I also used a bit thicker paint and the brushwork is pretty direct, just as it was laid down. The day was just a couple weeks ago where early spring was evident during this trip with my husband and a fishing friend.

Your brushwork is always so inspiring and this painting is another wonderful example of how confident and skilled you are. I especially like those reflections in the moving water.

All these fishing paintings are amazing! They invite you into those places of R & R.
