The original oil painting, 16 x 12 entitled Sunflower Trail, was painted by Eryn Tehan, in February 2020.
A super bloom of sunflowers coats the trail at Seven Mile Hill in the Columbia River Gorge. Thousands of bees dive happily into the swaths of pollen, ignoring bystanders as they walk through. The flowers are so thick, the trail is lost on multiple occasions. Looking up towards the top of the hill, all that is visible, is a sea of yellow and a bright blue sky, a dream land of beauty.
