Today we drove to The Hook, which is near Hood River Oregon. The Hook is a spit of man made land that separates the Columbia River and a small pond and can be perfect place to paint when the wind is not blowing. Today was the perfect day. The Osprey was hanging out overhead as I painted. He was hoping to get a fish and added to the drama of our day. I used the log as a chair while I painted. Rocks do not make for solid footing when one is totally involved in a painting, a bird, and the perfect day.
