I recently gave several painting lessons to a couple that wanted to experience and enjoy some plein air painting while in France this summer. I helped get them all set up with supplies, and I asked them to bring in some photographs that they had taken for us to work from.  One of the photos was of a stunning view of Mt Hood, pink sky and moon. Great photography!  We all had a great time painting and I ended up with a wonderful 14X11″, auctioned it on Ebay and it now belongs on of my fantastic collectors in Montana. I thought I would paint it again, this time in a large format, so this is what resulted and I will be launching it to Ebay Auction through my Ebay store on Saturday, May 5th. Thanks to Jean and Jane for the beautiful photo to work from, and I wish you both the best as you paint in France this summer.  I have changed the front page of my on line gallery with this new painting. -Jeff
