27"h x 48"w, Oil on Canvas
This overview of Oaks Park and the Oaks Bottom Wildlife Reserve
had been on my mind for some time before I got around to starting it.
Every year I enter a painting or two at the Multnomah County Fair held there.
Last year they asked me if I would do a painting on the grounds.
I did one of the grounds instead.
A lot of people stopped to talk to me while I worked on this one.
Most enjoyably; the couple that bought it off the easel.
By the time I finished this canvas, most of the trees were bare.
