Oregon Spring

Springtime in western Oregon (USA) is beautiful. The fields turned green at the beginning of our wet winter, but now some are a blaze of yellow mustard flowers.  Snow still clings to distant mountain peaks.  I couldn't resist painting this while traveling north on Interstate 5.  It is hard to paint while Dale drives, but sometimes I can't resist.  I have my water tied to the door handle, my little pan of paint in my left hand, and the sketchbook on my lap ........


  1. Wonderful, Elva...mustard is blooming here too!

  2. Painting whilst on the move? Fabulous! An utterly charming page xx
