MULTNOMAH FALLS

I just finished this piece, a rendering of Multnomah Falls. A favorite place for Oregonians and all those who live along both sides of the Columbia River. Growing up in a small town in Washington State, my friend and I would bicycle there as kids -- about a 15 mile trip one way. 

Multnomah Falls, OregonThe hike to the top may be tiring for some, but you'll be rewarded with one of the most beautiful views of the Columbia River Gorge. I burned this image onto a 17 x 11 inch wood slice. I added some subtle coloring by mixing acrylic paint with urethane finish. It has at least three coats of UV protection polyurethane. I'm very happy with how it turned out, especially with the light touch of color, and the three dimensional effect. If you haven't seen Multnomah Falls (or the Columbia Gorge), you're missing out, friends. It is one of the tallest waterfalls in the world, and only one of 77 on the Oregon side of the river.

THE HUNTERS

I decided to name this "The Hunters" because it is unclear which one is the hunter, for they both appear to be hunting each other....
