Number twenty one of the thirty day painting challenge keeps me on the Dundee Hills. There are lovely viewpoints on the hill, one of which is a view of Mt Hood on a clear beautiful day. This is where this day’s challenge comes into play. Tour guides lead the way as you follow along on your horse through the vineyards.

On number twenty of the thirty day painting challenge and upon request, it took me to the Dundee Hills vineyards. My partner, Sarah, has the fortune to work as a wine tour guide on horseback through Equestrian Wine Tours with owner and old-time cowboy, Jake Price. He’s a hoot! He’s such a character and you’ll enjoy the conversations with him as much as the  wine tasting on the hill.

Art Challenge Day 2

Second day of painting, this time using oil paints.  I’ve decided to paint on 6″ square wood panels for the remainder of the Art Challenge. Found it tricky to paint on smaller. I had to refine my brushstrokes and change my perception – bigger, bolder strokes were key in moving along.

The subject matter is Sarah’s horse statue. I love the rustic colors that shine from its surface. It makes my imagination soar.
