It was a gorgeous spring day today. This is a view across the farm fields toward Mt. Harris, named after the early pioneer Harris family who settled under the mountain in the 1860's. I'm related to them, somehow, on my mother's side. You didn't know I was such an eastern Oregon blueblood, did you?

Speaking of eastern Oregon: I'm on the board of Arts East, our regional arts council, and we're searching for a new executive director. If you or anyone you know might be interested, you can find details at http://www.artseast.org/.

Great sense of distance in this one Don, really clever. Simple but enticing.

Wonderful fresh greens and blues here. I liked how the curve of the furrows carries you into the painting. Always enjoy Mt. Harris' distinctive profile from the far end of the valley.
