Long View

This painting is the view of Longview Washington, seen from Rainier, Oregon. So It makes sense to call the left panel Longview, and the right panel Rainier. My next door neighbor once commented that our view of the river was not the best. l replied that I rather liked the industrial aspects of the view. And so I felt I should paint it.
The pun about it being a long view of Longview is even funnier when you know that the towns name is because it was founded by Mr. Long. And although Longview is long, Rainier is not rainier, though it might be a bit windier.
