"Yakima Farm"

Oil   6”x8”   Canvas Board  

I did this little painting from my brother’s backyard west of Yakima, WA. I was looking down at a neighbor’s farm in the valley below. A little to the left of this view, you can usually see the snowcapped summit of Mt. Adams peaking over the ridge. It was too hazy to see the mountain on this particular day, but there are beautiful views in every direction. I’ve always liked the way this road disappears back into the distance. There were horses grazing in the pasture below me. I might add them when the paint is dry and there’s less chance of messing up what I’ve already done.
