    Behind the Canvas

    This particular oil painting represents one happy experience at Swan Island Dahlias, in Canby Oregon. It was painted the summer of 2015 before I ventured to return to college in order of fulfilling my dream of earning a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree. It had been a busy and happy summer, and I participated in many plein air events, getting to know the lay of the land in my new home state: beautiful Oregon. My father was in town and managed to pay me a visit as I happily painted the dahlia fields at the height of bloom in August.
