Smith Rock State Park, Oregon. Heat Rises

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!


“Smith Rock” , Acrylic on Plywood, 2’x3′. If you would like to aquire “Smith Rock” please shoot me an email: jesse.fortune@gmail.com I always look forward to reading your comments and if you have friends that like to climb please SHARE the post! Thanks for supporting the EAQ!
