PACIFIC NORTHWEST PLEIN AIR 2011 in the COLUMBIA RIVER GORGE.
In its seventh year, Pacific Northwest Plein Air competition is a series of art events featuring the art and literary works of accomplished painters and writers created at various locations around the Columbia River Gorge----the nation's first designated National Scenic Area. Works of art will be available for viewing and for sale during a month-long gallery show at the Columbia Center for the Arts in Hood River. Jim Lamb is the juror.
I painted this in the park at Bingen, using a tree as a wind break. I think my rendition of the trees in the wind are not nearly leaning enough. I had an annoying bystander who proceeded to lecture me on how the trees were one sided because of the wind and that usually it was a favorite spot for hangliders, but today was too windy. At least he didn't tell me that his aunt was a really good painter.
