|Columbia Gorge Sunrise|
12 x 9
My hosts, the Fields have suggested Ruthton Park for my sunrise painting. It's a pocket park, with a nice overlook of the Columbia River, and today, a VW van parked in the back corner. I tiptoe my supplies to the cliff edge and set up to watch the sun rise. It is a still, cold morning, a slight bite reminding me that fall is around the corner. Still, I'm confident that sweater weather will end in about an hour. The river goes through several color phases. I choose one, and lay it down in paint.
The view in the other direction is enchanting as well. I'm getting hungry. But painting comes first.
