Neighbors

One of those crystalline summer evenings we get around here. This house near Cove, Oregon is not far from a piece of property we own. It's a beautiful spot, with views across the broad valley in one direction, and pine-covered mountains looming up behind. We hope to build a home on it before too long. In the meantime we drive over to visit the place and imagine ourselves being neighbors.

Gorgeous painting Don. I know the place. You captured the light on the slope so well. I love the light we have been having with the thunderstorms. I was thinking yesterday about my first Autumn here in Cove. I thought I had died and gone to heaven with the quality of light.

Rahina, you're very kind--thanks so much for your positive wishes.

Hi Lu--yes, that little A-frame church is quite unique. Cove's a lovely little town.

Don Gray said...

Thanks a lot, Sheila. I've been enjoying your recent paintings.

Hi Katherine--of course you know the place! We do get wonderful light here, don't we? Much more sun than western OR.

This is beautiful; I especially like the shadows on the hills.
