Cape Blanco Lighthouse



Fall looks differently depending on where the location is.
Here on the Oregon coast at Cape Blanco lighthouse,
fall is windy, and often stormy.

Rising Squall


Along the coast - especially during the winter,
sudden storms come up, with winds, waves and clouds.
Then, just as suddenly they can disappear.

Blue Lady Pansy



Pansies are one of my favorite garden flowers.
They will grow in extreme temperatures and last a long time.
This pretty lady and her companions,
graced the deck out side my studio window for many months.

Thistle



Where ever I travel, I take photos of wildflowers and have a large collection.

Rocky Mt. High



Painted for Barb's Studio Atelier RMNP Challenge.
I love the Rocky Mt's. from Colorado to Montana, and into Canada.
They are awesome with their tall jagged peaks,
many still covered with patches of snow and glaciers all year round.
The lower elevations are often filled with evergreens
which unfortunately are being destroyed by bark beetles.
(hence the purple and orangish colors in the trees).

Window Shopping in the French Quarter


Painted for Bill Guffey's Virtual Paintout New Orleans challenge.

I liked this view of a couple tentatively peering into a shop door,
curious but not quite sure if they want to enter.
It was dark inside and looked very much like a Santeria or Voodoo Shop,
so maybe that was why they were both curious and hesitant.
