I have been selected as one of two finalists for the large scale art work for the new Lebanon Oregon Library (wish me luck) so I have been getting my final proposal all set and working on a painting that better represents what I would do for them. The paintings I would do are up to four 48x72" landscape images from the Willamette valley area. I grew up in Lebanon, so it has been a great chance to reflect on my child hood and what hold dear from my years there.
