Smith Rock: Both a rock climber’s and a plein air painter’s paradise. If you are going to do either in July, go before 10am or after 5pm
I wasn’t so fortunate. Temps went up past a hundo in the shade. But the EAQ must go on so, I took the life drawing model’s advice and brought 2 gallons of water, and needed every drop.
Several hikers stopped to chat and inquired the price of the painting. Kind of stoked I didn’t sell it that day because as of now it’s been my most popular piece!
