Columbia River Art

On our recent camping trip we did manage some art work despite the iffy weather. I am always enchanted by the Columbia River, ever moving, but silent. The bluffs form a beautiful backdrop and the trees, sagebrush, and flowers provide the welcome mat. I attempted to capture some of that feeling in a block print.

The block was carved on site at Wanapum State Park. The prints were made after I was back in my studio.

About Paul

I'm retired, but working at painting, photography, and song writing. We like to travel and paint plein air in new places. Of course that's also where photography comes into the picture, so to speak. Sometimes I get inspired to write songs about the people and places we visit.

    I agree. It’s very nice work. I, too, haven’t carved since high school and that was linoleum, not wood. I don’t think I ever did carve wood to use for printing.

  2. Very nice, Paul. I haven’t carved a block since jr. high school.
