Cathleen Rehfeld an oil painter love doing small daily oil paintings. They have an immediate freshness about them. Whatever you are thinking about that day goes into them, almost like a visual diary. She love the creamy color and intense luscious look of oil paint, making brushstrokes that bring out that quality in the paint and try new ideas, colors, and subject matter.
A little 6"x6" oil study for a larger painting of wildflowers in The Columbia Gorge. This is the area around Rowena Crest, along the Columbia River. Painted on 1/4" panel with keyhole on the back for hanging.
