Sun Sets on Horse Heaven Hills heads to the US Embassy in Yemen

Sun Sets on the Horse Heaven Hills. Oil on Linen. 20" x 36".
Last month I wrote about the Art in Embassies program. Well the curator selected Sun Sets on the Horse Heaven Hills and it is now on its way to Sana'a, Yemen. 

This painting is based on a sunset visit to the top of the Horse Heaven Hills this August.  While the photo in the link is of Rattlesnake Mountain to the north, the picture with my husband and dog is the view I painted. It looks south toward the Columbia River and from here the Horse Heaven Hills are a long, slow slope to the gorge.
Atelier 4 is the art shipper who came to take my painting. Fascinating! It took them just a few minutes to wrap it up. They have been on the road for 7 weeks picking up and delivering art. You can see all the wrapped paintings in the back of their truck, below.
