Oil on Panel
This is another painting for an upcoming show depicting the land and people in different parts of rural Oregon and northern California. The subject here is the "Pie-Lady" at Apple Valley Store in the Hood River Valley as she makes some apple/berry pies. She said that she probably made 3500 pies in 2010! Wow! The store is wonderful! They sell jellies, jams and other condiments they produce along with amazing pear dumplings and a big variety of pies from locally grown fruit.
