APPLEGATE VALLEY FARM en plein air WHERE DID OCTOBER GO? I WASN'T EVEN RUNNING A POLITICAL CAMPAIGN!
Now that we can return our attention to the more enjoyable things in life... back to Plein Aire Painting!
Just yesterday my painter friend and I spent most of the day "up on the Applegate" as they say around here. You can just imagine how colorful the whole valley is just by seeing this one photograph! Sometimes I just drive out there and sit and stare at the mountains and across the narrow valleys. No wonder people move to Southern Oregon after they have fallen in love with the Applegate Valley! As usual my wonderful painting partner and I chose almost the same view to paint. She had almost finished her painting when I realized we should go. I, of course, was barely into my painting. I was able to block in and develop the shapes and colors but needed to return to my studio to complete this painting.
