Southern Oregon River Landscape Oil Painting, Rogue River Summer, Original Art

 "Rogue River - Summer"

Summer and rivers seem to go together! Today's oil painting was inspired from my summers in the hot weather of Southern Oregon. A day at the river or an evening picnic and swim was a perfect way to cool off from triple digit weather.

"Rogue River - Summer", a colorful original oil painting, shows an impressionistic view of this famous Southern Oregon mountain stream in the summer. The Rogue River attracts tourists to run the rapids in this remote landscape below Grants Pass. 

Along the way pools and coves provide a pause in this exciting trip through the canyons of towering mountains. Dense evergreen trees and massive rock formations add to the scenery.

This is another painting from visits to this area in the Cascade Mountains of Oregon. The weather is hot, but the river is icy cold and dangerously swift flowing. 

"Rogue River - Summer" is an 8 x 10" oil painting on canvas adhered archivally to a hardboard panel ready to place in a standard size frame.
