This photograph was taken while hiking in the Columbia River Gorge. This view, with Mt. Hood in the background, is takenfrom the upper Tom McCall Point Trail at Rowena Crest in Oregon, near the town of Mosier. The wildflowers are in full bloom. The gorgeous spread of golden color is black-eyed susans interspersed with lupin and Indian paint brush, yarrow, common storks bill, lewis and flax.
Creating portals of light, love, joy, beauty, compassion, hope and gratitude is my lifelong passion and gift for the earth, hence the name of my art business, For the Earth. My mother painted in oils when I was young and encouraged my own drawing, painting and handcrafting in all forms. My father, the photographer, gave me my first camera at age 8. As a result of these loving influences, I am a lifelong student of both mediums. I am grateful to my wonderful Pacific NW painter teachers, Stan Capon and Edi Olson, for training my eye and technique. I hope you will enjoy this image as much as I enjoyed its creation.
