The Wallowas

Oil on board, 6" x 6"
$125.00 + $6.00 shipping in US.
SOLD

This scene is about twenty miles from my house, as the crow flies. But I'm not a crow, so by road it's eighty miles of curvy mountain highway. But it's worth the trip for the gorgeous scenery.

The view is from the head of Wallowa Lake, looking toward the Eagle Cap Wilderness. My memories of childhood include many camping and hiking trips into the high meadows and indigo lakes tucked away in these rugged mountains.

Beautiful, Don! We're heading down to the Lostine next weekend, and I hope to get some painting done while we're there. It's a special place!

Great work indeed ! This landscape is magnificent. I never visit your country but this painting gives me wish.

Don, you get a lot of depth and detail in those little 6x6 paintings.

Hi Zack and thanks! The south fork of the Lostine was where we usually camped, so all that country holds a lot of memories for me. Have a good time, hope to see some paintings from there show up on your blog.

Hi Don & Brenda & Jared (is here up there w/you?) Can't tell you how much we are enjoying your Murrieta house. The light the fog the color. Dave & I are ready to purchase. The site is down so we couldn't review what you still have for sale. Your daily art is something I look forward to every day. The Chandlers
