River Art Deschutes River Boaters Acrylic Painting 9x12 Inches Framed Sherri McDowell Artist Oregon by HeART


What could be more restful than floating the Deschutes River in Oregon on a summer day? The Deschutes River is a favorite destination for all kinds of recreation. I grew up in this particular area, and it is one of the main reasons that I paint landscapes.

The ponderosa trees that line the banks of the river offer shade from the bluff above. In this painting the boat floats the oxbow turn at a campground called Bull Bend. It is not far from Pringle Falls, and the town of La Pine.

Acrylic paints bring out the intensity of the summer colors, contrasted against the deep shadows of the large trees in the foreground. I have spent many hours painting and sketching on this bluff. It was one of my father's favorite places on the river, and memories of him are particularly strong right in this spot.

The painting is framed, and you can select the frame from several choices by looking at the variation photos. It ships free of charge to United States locations.

If you are interested in a custom acrylic painting that might be arranged as well.
