Painting For a Fund Raiser

I was asked to donate a painting to a local scholarship fundraiser--The Doug Dunbar Scholarship.

I decided that an interpretation of a spot on the McKenzie River would appeal to a wide audience around here and consequently raise more money. I worked from a couple of photos taken on one of Mike and my little summer afternoon raft trips.

Because of the art path I've been travelling, it's a challenge to just paint something that "is." However, it turns out I can go back to my roots in transparent watercolor (with a touch of gouache) and paint a pretty landscape.

Yes, you can! I love the water in this painting. Hope it raises lots of funds :)
