Oil on Panel
Once again, a painting for the project: AN UNCOMMON BEAUTY--Paintings of Life and Land East of the Cascades.
This is Mary, a woman from the Willamette Valley (Oregon) who, over 60 years ago, fell in love with a cowboy from eastern Oregon, left her more urban lifestyle and spent the rest of her life farming, ranching and raising her children in a place that could accurately be called "out in the middle of nowhere"! Here, she is sharing stories of her life with us. She is still more active on her ranch than most nearly-90 year olds are at anything!
