Valley View - Prosser Columbia Basin Fine Art Landscape Plein Air by Melanie Thompson

Valley View - 8x10 - Oil on Canvas - Landscape


Driving home from a road trip, my husband and I decided to take a backroad home. As we looked behind us we realized we HAD to pull over at a rest stop - the hazy light was glittering off the Yakima River and Mount Rainier was faintly visible. In reality there is a city in this valley, but reality should never ruin a good painting.

On another note, want to see something cool? Check out this photo found on

Wilfire season! It always brings on a special kind of ADD when a bunch of my friends are out fighting fires, and I'm stuck inside. =)
