Hood River - On Location

Sketched in Hood River yesterday near a wine tasting room, down past the Hood Rive train depot. Pretty quiet morning and nothing much going on asside from the passing of a few freight trains.


  1. These are great, colorful sketches. I'm really impressed at the freshness, yet detail suggested here.

  2. Thanks Elizabeth, I told my friends I was going to be down by the Historical Train Depot. I did one longer more realistic painting of an old pullman car. (which made me thirsty)So I painted these next on the porch of the tasting room with a glass of wine.!!! My friends never found me.

  3. she vamoosed to the caboose! Really love these sketches--they radiate warmth and vitality

  4. I hope you didn't drink all those barrels of wine!! ha ha What I like about the train station sketch is the use of those cool blues and violets - very inviting.

  5. Thanks Katherine and Celeste.
    Rhonda, those barrels are huge,no one could drink all four! :)

  6. Love the Hood River sketch - I feel like I've been there. And the green squiggles next to the wine barrels are magnificent!
