Snow in the Wetlands
Today I went to Killin Wetlands west of Banks, OR to scout a research project I am planning with Metro.
Shortly after arriving, huge snowflakes began falling. It looked like winter was far from over.
After a while, however, the sun came out and I found a small group of violet green swallows.
Looks like spring is coming after all.
Last weekend, I converted our dinner table into a studio as I finished an acrylic painting. Sarah bought me a pair of canvasses for Christmas and requested I fill them. For the painting above, I tried to capture the various shades of green, brown, and gray that compose the winter landscape of Washington County.
