Today will be the second and hopefully last of a two day hiatus
awaiting art supplies. I painted Imnaha last Summer. Why I
called it that I don't know. Imnaha is a very small town at the
end of the road about 24 downhill miles out of Joseph,Oregon,
which until I went to Imnaha, I thought was the end of the
road. It was the wintering grounds of the NezPierce Indians.
It is a magical little spot not far from the Idaho border. If
you take either of the dirt roads out of town you can see
vistas of Hells Canyon. It is one of those towns built on a
part of the earth that is clearly a power spot. It is no wonder
that in the book The Shack the main character converses
with God in a shack outside Imnaha.

Beautiful colors and great story of this little town and it's history.

This would be a fine painting, no matter what you named it. But somehow it seems right to call it Imnaha...I don't know why either...??

Don it is a big question mark to me why most of my paintings get called what I call them. Just a feeling evoked? Writing the blog made me want to take a ride over there though. Thanks for your visit and comment Mr.Gray. We have SUN!!!!!
