Cornhusk Treat

The Fey Longhorn Ranch (Yamhill, Oregon) have magnificent cattle. The appealing nature of this cow receiving a leafy snack from her owner caught my eye.  Cornhusk Treat, watercolor, 19" x 25", unframed

WIP

The cast shadows haven't been painted yet, so the appearance of floating vegetables will soon change. Onions and garlic need to be completed. I love the jewel-like hues that can be achieved transparent watercolors.

Local Waterfall

This is the falls at Cabin Creek, a short walk from the Starvation Creek exit on I-84. It may be pint-sized compared to the other waterfalls in the Columbia River Gorge, but it is an intimate and refreshing place to linger.

Light and Shadows

This is what caught my eye this morning: the rising sun hitting hosta leaves. Growing up on a farm, I was very young when I became fascinated with designs found in the plant world. I'm still being mesmerized...

Work In Progress

We are encouraged to eat a rainbow, but it is just as satisfying to paint a rainbow of vegetables. This watercolor is in the early stage, with lots of vibrant colors to come. Early summer upon us, and young vegetables are putting on growth. I'm already anticipating my backyard garden to table meals.

Fey Longhorns

This week, I had the wonderful experience of visiting the Fey Longhorn ranch, located in Yamhill, Oregon. Daniel and Angelina Fey raise registered Texas Longhorns, and they graciously allowed me to photograph their handsome animals. These longhorns are richly colored and sport impressive horns, and they were very even-tempered. Even with calves at their sides, the cows allowed us fairly close, and were curious about
