Oregon Grape Spring Flowers

8x10        Oil             $125
I've just completed these two paintings for an upcoming exhibit at Champoeg State Park in Oregon. My art guild (North Clackamas Arts Guild) has been invited to show paintings pertaining to Oregon's landscape, and  state history. The exhibit will be held June 5, 6, 2010.
The Oregon Grape plant is the State Flower. It grows abundantly in the Willamette Valley, where I live. The berries are edible. But, I've tasted them and would have to be very hungry to enjoy them!

  1. Love these mahonias, Wendy! Two great color studies, nice atmospheric mood too. I like the two very different palettes, each one is rich and complete.Nice painterly textures. Mmmmm!
