I plain, flat out LOVE rhododendrons. I love the fact that they
are big and bold and everywhere in Western Washington this
time of year. There is an old rhodie in Everett that has to be
twelve feet high by fifteen feet wide. When it is in bloom it is a solid
mass of bright pink - spectacular!
One last painting of the Gorge before we head home. I forgot to take a picture of my painting so instead here is the amazing artist and lovely lady, Emiliya Lane. We all got one quick painting in before the wind kicked up.
Wow, what a day! Amazing weather, a fantastic location to paint at and lots of great company. I'm a happy camper or should I say painter. :) if you've never been to Beacon Rock State Park before, I'd highly recommend a visit.
Lucky me, I'm on the road with some great gals from the PAWA group. We are headed to the Columbia River Gorge for a paint out. I haven't been to this part of the state since I was twelve and had completely forgotten how beautiful it is.
