On our way through Oregon, we camped at Malheur National Forest on the South Fork of the Burnt River. So did a whole town of people on OHV’s and in RV’s with loud generators. I did a little sketching of the trees as lots were over 100 feet tall.

In the morning we headed out to look for a quiet spot where I could paint and a wide shoulder where Allen could ride his bicycle. I managed a nice painting of some cows in a flower filled field and a creek in the morning.

After an early lunch, I did another painting of some young Douglas Fir trees. I even managed to rig up an auto sun shade on my Strada easel which worked very nicely.

Thanks to Kim Casebeer for the tips on that one! Tomorrow we are on our way to our friends house in Wenatchee, Washington and more Plein Air painting.
