The inspiration for this piece was twofold.  First, it is based on a very agreeable and peaceful landscape I happened upon in Oregon.  Second, I liked the fact that there were several restful areas in the painting where the scene was not too busy, contrasted with the more active shapes in the middle distance. This piece is on canvas board and will need a frame for display.
