I am "pretty sure" that this will be my next photo that I will use to inspire a painting.... I am working up to some gorgeous photos I have taken at Smith Rocks which is outside Bend about 50 miles that I have wanted to paint for several years but knew I wassn't ready....hopefully in a couple more months, a couple more paintings and I will be willing to give it a try. This photo was taken of the Deshutes Ruver leading towards Benham falls which is about 10 miles from us going south. The water is REALLY this blue and I just love walking along the river to the falls. So many painting challenges....
