Similkameen. Oil on Canvas. 40 x 36.

This is a painting I've been working on since late May. In between working on this, I painted another 32 paintings.

The Similkameen River flows from Canada into the United States in the Okanogan. You can see the many oxbows as the river bounces against the Okanogan Range to it's east. This is an area rich in wildlife diversity and Conservation Northwest, Washington State and others are currently working to keep this important landscape in existing ranches to protect the region from being carved up for development of second homes.
