"Haldeman Pond" 6x9" Pastel on sanded paper
Yesterday was so beautiful! The weather was just right for a mini paint-out with my painting buddies Gretha and Bev. We took a 20 mile drive out to Sauvies' Island and parked ourselves for 2 1/2 hours at Haldeman Pond. The sky is much more warmer in color today because there is a fire burning in distant Lane County. When I woke this morning to a red sun, I knew the paint-out was going to be interesting. This little pond is part of a wildlife refuge that is open to the public only during the summer months. We saw sandhill cranes flying above with their long necks and huge wings.
