Hi All! :)
I know I am a little late but better late than never, hey!! :)
HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL YOU WONDERFUL PEOPLE!!! :)
Our 2013 started beautifully with a sunny but freezingly chilly walk in a local park by the lovely and fast flowing Willamette River.
Here are the first photos SOOC (Straight out of camera) of 2013 for you to enjoy. :)

Sunny but freezing, the Willamette River, OR.
The fallen trees rushing down the river are getting caught in the old pilings making a beautiful natural
sculpture, I just LOVE it :)
These basalt columns the "Stafford Stones" were created
by artist and sculptor Frank Boyden. They are engraved with the poetry of William Stafford, Oregon's most famous poet who was Oregon's Poet Laureate. He lived in Lake Oswego where this beautiful park (Foothills Park) is located along the Willamette River.
Even though is was sunny on New Years' Day, it was a little hazy out over the Mountain 60 miles away but she looked so magnificent I had to take a photo ( taken from Lake Oswego, OR. looking East to Mt. Hood over Milwaukie OR.
We often say, "Have you seen THE Mountain today?"
On our drive home, I had to stop and take this photo, it looks like the birds are having a NEW YEARS' DAY meeting, LOL!!! :)
I Hope you all have a lovely Wednesday :)
Happy Painting/Creating! :) T.
