Every fall, it’s hunting time in Oregon. Time to get out the guns, and dress in clothing that looks like the forest, all to be able to catch an elk off guard that ends up on the dinner table. This fall hunting trip was no different other than we were not using guns. Instead, a camera was in hand.
During the day, my husband and I went on many walks and saw nothing but an occasional bird, a squirrel, or some other little critter. Some hunting years are just that way. That gets pretty boring after a few days, so in between walks, I got out my trusty old paintbrush to see what I could create. I had on old, well it wasn’t really old, in fact it was a new shirt that I accidentally spilled something on and could not get the stain out. My sister suggested that I just take a paintbrush to the t-shirt and paint something pretty over the stain.
I am partial to flowers most of the time, so I got out my sketch pad, a palette, some paint and my paintbrushes. I started sketching an idea, decided I liked it, so I put it on my shirt and I am so happy with it! We didn’t get any elk on this years hunting trip, but I am pleased with a new looking Original T-shirt. A photo of the result is below. I have more on my website about the t-shirt http://mymagicbrushes.com/ along with other artwork. Please visit and look around.
Wishing you Happy Holidays. Blessings Yovette
This Painting was so much fun! It is simply titled “Multnomah Falls”. I was recently in Oregon, and was able to visit the Falls. What an outstanding place! It is located along the Columbia Gorge River just outside of Portland. It is so interesting to view all the paintings there, eat ice cream, or climb to the top of Multnomah falls. No, I did not climb up there, but other people were doing so.
There is lush green all around in the summer, and lots of ice in the winter. There is a wide variety of vegetation and flowers. Multnomah Falls is amazing, especially when you are standing down below and looking up. Or, you can stand in the middle on the bridge and view Multnomah Falls both up and down. It is a must see if you are ever in Oregon.
