A native Oregonian, artist Jane Vanderzanden grew up in Hermiston and went on many horseback rides along the trails of the Eagle Cap Wilderness and Blue Mountains. Her fine details come from firsthand observations on horse pack trips and hiking. She captures what she sees in her painting compositions and scratchboard drawings. Then she applies many acrylic paint layers to her colorful artwork. “The finished result is often described as ‘having depth’ and a ‘three-dimensional appearance.’”
