A NEW version of my plein air sketch. I really like this mood; the mountain looks strong and solid.

Oak Grove schoolhouse was built in the early 1900's. Beyond that ridge is the "upper valley" and Draper's Orchard, where I painted the mountain a few days ago. (painting below)

From the edge of the orchards, this view of the north slopes of Mt Hood.
I loved painting with the warm scent of strawberries and cherries wafting from the fields behind me.
about the artist
- Katey Ellen Price
- White Salmon, Washington, United States
- I have always enjoyed making things - learning to use the tools and properties/qualities of materials. My favorite place to renew is in a Forest, Alpine Meadow, or on a Lake; all are wonderful templates for living simply and elegantly! I started drawing at age 5 and worked in several media, eventually taking a minor in Fine Art along with my Science degrees. Later studies in Fiber, Surface Design, Book Arts and Painting support my work today. I continue to study painting through workshops and perseverance at my easel. I work on location and sometimes in the studio.
