Painting at Smith Rock State Park, OregonMonday, October 04, 2010 by Steve Hill

Crooked River flows through Smith Rock State Park
Crooked River flows through Smith Rock State Park
A beautiful sunny day gave the distant hillside and cliffs a warm contrast above the Crooked River, wrapped around the base of this state park, near Redmond. I'm always fascinated by surpentine compositions like this, especially with the geologic color make-up of rocks like rhyolite (reddish) and basalt (grayish) plying for attention. Really, it's the river that binds everything together, both physically and visually . . . always creating harmonious rhythms within the landscape.

Hi Steve, What great images you've been producing. A big change in the light from the Pacific Northwest. Know you're giving your umbrella a workout! We've just return from 10 days in CA during a big heat wave. Was nice to have some sunny days again but also nice to be back on Lopez with all the luscious greens! Are you not going to Croatia this year? When you are back on Lopez would love to have you look at some of the pastel paintings I've been doing for some feedback. I'm here for all of October and then gone most of November. Hope there will be some overlap time.... Enjoy the dry sunny days! Anne
