EVENING IN THE VALLEY Oil Painting by Kathy O'Leary

This 8 x 10 oil on canvas panel painting is a scene from a recent trip to the Heart K Ranch near Taylorsville, California. It is a region containing an historical ranch, and the traditional home lands of the Mountain Maidu Indians. To protect it from subdivision the land was purchased by the Feather River Land Trust, and is now protected in perpetuity. I went to a fundraiser/paint out there Sept. 26. This painting was done from a scene I witnessed when the sun was setting behind the western end of the valley. I couldn't resist the golds of the grasses & the deep rich colors of the trees and mountains. SOLD

  1. The quality of paint pigment is stable and the color is not easy to change, which is up to the international detection standard of environmentally friendly materials. We pursue high quality of the painting and precise control of the detail. All paintings are hand-painted oil painting .
