I painted this piece as a donation to the Columbia County Sheriff's Posse/Oregon Equestrian Trails, poker ride 2007. For 2 cans of food or monetary donation to benefit the Columbia County Food bank, participants received one raffle ticket to win the sawblade painting. There were hundreds of tickets in the can, with a little girl pulled out at random to draw the winning ticket......the ticket drawn belonged to my sister. Go figure. I loved painting this. There are two blue jays in the near tree that the second horse is startled by.
Additionally, to cover up a 4" center hole in the blade, I welded an 8" circle blade in the center. Take another look and you'll see it take shape.

We went for a drive down by the Columbia River in St. Helens one summer day 2009. As we passed by this moorage, I saw all the wheel barrows lined up by the gang plank and called out to stop the car so I could take a picture.
Streets of San Francisco as inspired by DSFDF in Water color. My sisters said I painted it wrong....So the image with the Van is how they remembered the ride. :o) It was done in colored pencil on 11x9 drawing paper
