About the painting

Rogue River Ranch in southwestern Oregon represents a step into the past. 

For thousands of years, the remote spot has provided ample opportunities for fishing, hunting and gathering.

It was the place where actress Ginger Rogers would go to escape from Hollywood. As Rogers wrote, "Days blend into each other here until they become just one long, sunny Sunday. The beauty of the countryside is at its peak. Oregon never looked lovelier."

I was pulled in by that sentiment when looking through photos in a mid-1950s photo album showing a Rogue River farm property. The dirt road and trees pulled me in. It was one of my earlier monochrome paintings, and I used some metallic paint to give the composition an extra sparkle.



This is a limited edition Giclee print from my original watercolor, “Ranch, Rogue River, 1950.” Prints are printed on 100% Cotton Rag paper using pigmented dyes. These prints look exactly like the original and are expected to last a lifetime.

Prints come matted in white, unframed, and ready to be framed in a standard frame.
