Day Five, Delayed in Bend, Oregon

Bend, Oregon, has many attributes, one of which are the Three Sisters mountains to the west. I was delayed by a needed service on the Red Queen (my name for my motorcycle), and so I spent the night in a local motel. The evening sunset is both beautiful and yet portends wet weather coming. So I painted it. The colors aren't quite true (they are better in person), but with the heavy cloud cover and poor lighting, this is the best I could get. I may be wet today on the road, but beauty is everywhere!

I went north on Highway 97 to Bend after a restful night along the Little Deschutes River in this lovely campsite:
 While walking in those bushes (over my head, they are BIG), I saw a coyote that was mighty interested in Sparky, who was on his leash. Bigger than the SoCal coyotes, this one looked well fed and beautifully pelted. A little too up close and personal for me, but I do love the wildlife!

Now I'm headed out east, for parts unknown. I hope to have wifi again, and be able to post more paintings and adventures for your pleasure. Here's the Red Queen parked for the night in the motel. No camping and windy this evening!

I love the complementary color scheme. The color is contrasting and vivid. A very stunning and wonderful piece.
