JONSRUD VIEWPOINT IN FALL
Jonsrud Fall Quilt, 12 x 24 oil
October, 2013 It is a crisp fall morning, and the sun shines through atmosphere at the base of Mt. Hood, cascading across the hilltops and lighting the fall leaves afire. The air warms, and so does the river valley. I shed my coats and finish my painting, enjoying the last bit of warm weather.
As a plein air painter, I spend many contented hours sitting in some inspiring spot with the sights and sounds of the outdoors, capturing my impressions of light and color. Back in the studio, these works expand, recreating a particular place in a special moment.
