From the Dike


8″  x 8″ oil on linen panel

This painting is actually OF Rentanaar Rd, which is just a little gravel path back to the dike and the marshy lakes and cow pastures in the interior of the island. In the winter this area is closed to everyone except bird hunters. There are black tail deer on the island. I don’t know if they’re hunted or not.

This view is from the top of the dike looking back toward the Wilamette River.
