The days are getting so much cooler with rain, then cold and wind. I really don't mind at all, since it gives me lots of reasons to just stay inside and paint! There are also crochet projects to be working on, and a good book or two lying around. No, I really don't mind that autumn is settling in!
Here's another painting in the moonrise series. There will probably be another one....my husband really likes it when I paint Mt Hood! The reference photo for this moonrise was taken by my daughter-in-law, Grace and she gladly shared it with me. It was quite the sight: the moon rising in the East behind Mt Hood, and the sun setting in the West casting golden orange lights upon the mountain!

My hometown is Oregon City, OR, which is built in layers along a portion of the Willamette River. This little painting depicts a walkway (called the "Promenade") on the bluff overlooking the lowest, original part of town. I had a great time painting the bright light behind the autumn trees. Those stone pillars beside the walk are very historical!

While the temperatures dropped to almost freezing, and the wind was howling, I had the urge to paint a warm sunny afternoon at the beach! It was a fun, quick little painting and it is being offered in a GIVEAWAY I am hosting on my Facebook Page. If you are on Facebook, look up Dorothy Jenson Art to sign up to win this painting!
