This is a painting of a beautiful bouquet of flowers that a guest brought to a recent party. Quite lovely, I thought it would offer another chance to celebrate the sunny smiles of sunflowers and a several techniques (and colors) that add fun and excitement to a watercolor painting (note the bits of purple).

The Pittock Mansion is one of the highest spots in Portland. and has one of the finest views of the city from the lawn out front. Built in 1914, it is one of Portland's architectural gems.

This painting features one of the many gardens that can be found throughout the property.

This painting was inspired by the view from Crooked Acres Vineyard in Underwood Washington. I am always awestruck by the sight of Mt. Hood as it towers above the adjacent mountains and valleys.
