Lupines in May
The Lower Columbia River is a scenic place. The Oregon hills near the town of Goble is in the distance. The far hills are mostly Douglas fir trees. The scotch broom are hard on my eyes and sinuses, but are beautiful and provide a great color contrast to the lupines.
This painting is from near the Marine Park at the Port of Kalama. The north end of Sandy Island is middle ground left. Cottonwood trees grow on the island.
130 years ago trains were ferried through this river scene from Kalama to St. Helens. Today large ships travel the Columbia here several times a day.
