Dream of Hawai’i
“Dream of Owyhee”, 8×10 oil on canvas board, by Rog Lyngaas,4aug09, XF palette.
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].
