“Little Trinity Lake Wayside”, 8×10 oil on canvas board, by Rog Lyngaas, 7aug09, XG palette.

In the Trinity’s there is a litttle lake with a wayside. It is a place where one can contemplate the peace of the world. Once I post this on roglyngaas.paintmap.com you may know where this place is.

There are locations of Oasis’ in the Owyhee [Pai’ute for Hawai’i] Desert.  I dream of finding them on my motorcycle.  Owyhee is a unique locale in Idaho, and yes it is named after Hawai’i.

This is the first painting I have ever done without using a Turpinoid or a Turpintine for cleaning my brushes.  I am using, Walnut oil for now.  I probably will return to turpinoid, just because it truly is toxic; and I need some toxicity in my work to be a true antithesis [devil’s advocate].
