This was so much fun!--what's not to like about painting red, pink and orange, especially if it's got lots of green!  It was challenge, too, to try to get the feeling of the intense sunshine reflecting off the flowers and the field.  As mentioned in the post title, this is a "field" of dahlias at The Gorge White House just south of Hood River, OR.  It's a great place!  A century-old farm, there are orchards, grapes and flowers surrounding the original home where they have wine-tasting and a gallery.  I will be exhibiting paintings there in September.
