Easel on down the Road - The Northwest 7 are Finished

This January I set my sights on finishing the NW7. In July I drove over 6600 miles to capture the great Northwest. It was my last, long "Easel on Down the Road" trip and it contained equal amounts of adventure, excitement and discomfort. I was concerned that I would not be able to connect to these paintings after so much time had passed but as soon as I restarted each one, my feet were back on location. I stayed as true as I could to the original colors and shapes. Here they are, in the order that I painted them.

Flathead Lake, Montana

Nez Pierce National Forest, Idaho

Orcas Island, Washington

Sea Lion Caves, Oregon

Shasta National Forest, California

Medicine Bow National Forest, Wyoming 

Kearney, Nebraska

In two days I leave for Hawaii, my very last state. I am excited for the trip but quite sad to be almost done!
