Morning Glory

oil on canvas board
My plein air group had its weekly meeting at Rowena Crest, in the Tom McCall Preserve, a couple weeks ago. There is a LOT to see from this area, from wildflowers to sweeping views of the Columbia River and the Gorge in both directions. I was drawn to this scene in part because of where I stood to paint it: I was not far from the others, but felt completely isolated because of the rolling terrain that separated us. It was quiet, calm and peaceful until one of my painting comrades warned me of rattlesnakes!
