Original Acrylic Painting $895.00

Lower Umpqua River, Western Oregon Coast Range

Hooded is something of an understatement for this extravagantly crested little duck.
Adult males are a sight to behold, with sharp black and white patterns set off by chestnut flanks. Females get their own distinctive elegance from their cinnamon crest.

24 " x 36" Acrylic $1500

 

The Tualatin River runs through a very small community where I grew up. The river brought fishermen from all over the valley each summer, but it also entertained children in the area all year long. Wonderful swimming holes, crawdads, samonberries, and if you were lucky a nice trout. If you followed the river up into the woods you would find the old swimming holes at Little and Lee Falls above Cherry Grove Oregon.

18" x 24 " Acrylic
SOLD

It was not until the mountain men made their way west, trapping and hunting for the pelt trade, that the cougar received a more worthy name from the white man--the mountain lion. Lithe and agile, the cougar unfailingly moves with grace. Their energy is limited by lung capacity to brief, forty-mile-an-hour sprints, so the lion must get to within striking range without startling the prey. A mountain lion can weigh from 180 to 200 pounds.
