Sauvie Island and is now owned by the talented Brent Perkins.
After percolating for six months, I`m working on a big oil painting of a grove of cottonwoods that have just budded out in early Spring. From my residency at the Brush Creek Ranch in Wyoming. The place was still kind of bleak from the winter, lots of downed trees and debris. But the tiny green leaves were a hint of color and life. Suggesting that delicacy in contrast to a battered dormancy is my challenge. I`ll post a progression of photos when it`s finished.
