For the collector of Oregon or Northwest art, a small (6 1/2" by 8 1/2" in inexpensive wood frame), unsigned contemporary watercolor of a small river running past rugged, arid cliffs, titled on reverse "John Day River @ Black Rock". The John Day River is a tributary of the Columbia River, in north central Oregon. At 243 miles in length it is the third longest free-flowing river in the United States. It is known for its salmon and steelhead fishing. The John Day Fossil Beds along its length is a major draw for paleontologists. The entire region is ruggedly beautiful and wild, and a fine example of classic western American landscape.
