I hope you enjoy my Oregon stamp. One beautiful state! Don't know about that Mt. Hood in the background though.:rolleyes:

I wanted to add the revised one. I think I like it better. I hope the kind Oregonians here approve. :eek:

I dunno exactly what Oregon is famous for, but Your stamp is, once again, really excellent! They should use them for car plates over there ... :D

This makes me wish I were a native Oregonian ... Here in Portland, at the world-famous Powell's Bookstore, you can settle into your own nook, look out on a view of trees and buildings, and, just like this young boy, read and dream for hours undisturbed ...

Sandy... you have captured Oregon atleast Portland area... Mt Hood is a very distinctive single volcanic mountain about 60 miles to the east.. if you moved your mountain a bit to the right and made it a bit smaller it would make it much more recognizable... but love the whole scene is fabulous !:cool::cool::cool::cool:

Silvy, thank you dear friend.

Katie, I truly appreciate it dear friend.

Cesare, Thank you dear Cesare. When I think of Oregon, I think of the beautiful ocean, the lighthouses, the wonderful city, terrific education, and Mt. Hood, the volcano!:D

C Pete, Wow Pete, that would be wonderful....I am between two counties here, and one library over looks the city cemetery-but it is beautiful-lol- and the other is in town, beautifully designed, but poorly stocked of the old classics. I am thankful for my kindle! ;)

GRS, You are a lucky duck too! I love your location as well. Thank you for your kind comment!

Gary, I know it is a bit exaggerated, but I wanted to do a childlike whimsical painting this time. From what I have heard from my sisters....Oregon is very close to Heaven. Thanks so much for your kind comment dear friend, I appreciate it. Please let me know how you feel about the second one if you have time. I think I like it much better.

Marilyn Anne, You are so kind, thank you very much!

Pat, Thank you so much dear friend. I'm so pleased that you liked it!

Sandy, looking at the second one just blew my mind, love the colors you added to the sky and changed the mountain, more clarity in painting, excellent, excellent work, if I was writing childrens books I would definately hire you to do the artwork, great, great job:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D

Sandy... yes I think the second work really nails it down...especially the rainbow ( which we have many here ) and the mountain peak... I like the enriching on the colors and play of light changes also..:cool::cool::cool::cool::cool::cool::cool: spectacular !!

Thanks so much dear Pat! I am just about ready to do this kind of work. I've worked for a while on different poses and I am more comfortable now than I was a year ago.

Hi Gary, Thanks so much. I just worked on a few more details. I will upload another-lol. I needed to add a tree for him to lean into. I tried to move the first tree, but I had so many layers and it took away effects I wanted from some of the filters. Even when I moved the boy backwards, again-so many layers to consider above and below colors, filters, and effects.
I think I will be working on this one more. I love to add tiny details here and there.;)
