Franciscan Villa - Columbia Gorge

Somewhere in the Columbia Gorge again, on the old highway,  near  the  falls, is a villa inhabited by an order of Franciscan sisters.  Kathy has arranged special permission for us to paint on this lovely spot on several occasions.  I painted behind the residence just below their own private waterfall. Sunlight trickled through a canopy of leaves, the trail seemed to  sparkle with light.  Such a peaceful reflective day.

I have entered this into the juried show at the Aurora Gallery next month. (Check Side Bar)  I also have more photos of the Villa to share.
