I designed the poster for the Oregon Country Fair this year. There was some unfortunate politics around this image that caused me to make a few minor changes to appease some "politically correct" critics. They finally accepted the revised image, although I did hear some discouraging words at the fair. Most comment I got from people there were very positive and encouraging. Since I was going to be there for the whole fair, I thought I would create small paintings to show at the fair. Most of these are from photos I have taken in recent years.

Back home and on the Willamette for some mid summer vistas. This river looks great from so many viewpoints. It is just down the road from my house to many of my favorite spots.
