The Ochoco Forest and its neighbor, the Malheur Forest, is located in central Oregon. The area is one of immense beauty and teems with wildlife especially migratory birds which call it home.

And there are BIG trees, all over Oregon.

I was lucky to have a map large enough to cover the lower part of my canvas and from there it was a matter of finding the right combination of greens and browns in my paper stash to make the statement I intended.

    1. Thanks, Bren. I'm working on one about Oklahoma now and am wondering how to depict dust bowl, oil wells, farmers, and good ole boys!

    1. The depth I created was totally accidental... and a good lesson in going with your gut response.
