                                                                             and 
                                                   – first chance to buy the painting!

Day 3
My friend was kind enough to send me the picture that I painted from. As a thank you, I am sending her some of my note cards! 
“That photo was taken from inside a barn on Sauvie Island. The birds were so cute together.  When I saw them I had to capture the moment!”

Sauvie Island, originally Wapato Island, is approximately 10 miles north of Portland, Oregon. It is the largest island in the Columbia River and one of the largest islands in the U.S. Located at the junction of the Columbia River to the east, Willamette River to the south and Multnomah Channel to the west, the island’s northern half is a wildlife refuge and the southern half is predominantly rural farmland with small residential enclaves.”
I used some palette knife on the foreground and the background. That should make Leslie Saeta happy! 🙂

I NEED HELP with names of paintings. If you have any resources, email me! annie@anniesalness.com
