Driving home from Portland


We visited our children in Portland last weekend and on our three-hour drive home we experienced torrential rain, sunshine and hail - a typical spring day in Oregon. The farmer's fields were a beautiful spring green where the sun touched them and the new growth on some of the trees was a lovely bright ochre. In the painting, however, it looks more like an autumn than a spring day.
