My friend and partner at Tumalo Art Co. in Bend, OR, Tracy Leagjeld tracyleagjeld.blogspot.com/ and I went up the Cascade Lake Hwy to paint recently. It's only 30 minutes away, but another world. Because I am still recovering from a broken leg we painted from the small parking lot right by the Sparks Lake marsh/meadow where Cascades Penstemon was blooming in profusion. South Sister was peeking up behind the trees and that's where we both painted a plein air piece. We photographed the meadow up the road a bit and there was one deer grazing in the meadow. This spot is one of our favorites to paint from. Both of the paintings are done in soft pastel.
