We visited McBee Road atop the Horse Heaven Hills twice in one day last Fall, when the light was long and saturated. This is the view looking towards the Columbia River.

Horse Heaven Hills Morning

This is one of my favorite vantage spots in the state of Washington. It's so stunning that I am always surprised that it's not crowded with people. Instead, it's just my husband, me and sometimes people target shooting in the distance.

Last week I flew to DC on a clear day. It was clear nearly the width of North America. We flew very near Mt. Rainier as if Google Directions said "turn left at the mountain" and then east across the Yakama Reservation and above the Horse Heaven Hills. It was a thrill to see the areas I paint from the air: Union Gap, Rattlesnake Mountain, Horse Heaven Hills. Wow.

Paintings of storms, Lucia Douglas Gallery, 2014.
This is a snapshot of a few of my paintings in the gallery. After this was taken we tacked my sketches next to the painting which made the overall exhibit interesting. The painting on the left, Summer Storm, is sold.
