Mostly painted at a Tony Alain workshop with some follow up work once I got home. View of the Oregon coast range from the Willamette Valley near Monroe, Oregon. This was an assignment to paint something familiar from memory. Turned out much looser and richer than the versions done with a photo. Tony’s workshop was great fun!

This was painted during an annual five-day painting retreat with my friend Shahar. I used a photo taken on a day trip through the Willamette Valley to Eugene and back with my camera. Hit Jefferson, Oregon as the light was getting golden.
