Rapids on the River

"River Rush"
26 x 16 image, Soft Pastel
Framed—34 x 24 $1350

The Deschutes River courses right through Bend, OR. This canyon scene is from a 3 mile loop trail that starts in River Bend Park near the Old Mill District. I started this painting as an example of a soft pastel landscape and demoed while being filmed for a segment on Oregon Art Beat (OPB) that will be aired later this year. Some of my best, loosest, paintings have been done while demoing. I attribute this to the fact that because I'm also talking to people my right brain is fully engaged and I'm painting instinctively...not over thinking.
