"Ode to Oregon" Watercolor
|A birthday watercolor for Anne|
I had recently discovered Emily Carr's work, so I would also say that I was thinking about her while I was painting this watercolor. She is a Canadian artist, who lived in the Pacific Northwest, and lived from 1871-1945. A pioneer. She is considered post-Impressionist.
One of the coolest things I experienced during that trip was seeing a deer swimming in the Clackamas River near Anne's home.
Look for the deer swimming upstream
