And where is this place? The river is the great Columbia — the great natural highway to the Pacific Ocean — that borders between Oregon and Washington in the scenic Columbia River Gorge. The peaceful, sleepy town in the background is White Salmon, the day overcast yet still warm, the season autumn, and the feeling one of quiet contemplation on a weekend afternoon that belongs to you, just you, with no obligations, deadlines, unsolicited phone calls, or overflowing in-box, whether it’s on your desk or desktop.
Peace. Quiet. Space. Contentment.

A Note Card
Water — whether it’s flowing in a river, a stream, a brook, a canal, or along the coast — is conducive to thought, contemplation, and a sense of peace and quietude.

Valley Stream, by the Norwegian Artist, Steve Henderson
Much of what happens within our lives — and in the collective world around us — is disturbingly out of our control, but one of the gifts of life is that there are many little things that are within our element — from the profound — our very thoughts, hidden within the recesses of our soul — to the prosaic — which pair of socks we will wear, soup or sandwiches for lunch, the brand of laundry detergent.
Paintings on one’s wall are a means of controlling the sense of chaos around us, and we need only to walk into the room and catch their eye before our breath slows, becomes more regular, and we pause for thought.
Valley Stream is a tranquil site of hushed movement. The waterway wends its way gently into the background of trees and distant hills, and in contemplating the work, one can cast off the tension and strain of the day’s demands. The beauty of a well done painting is that it transports the viewer to a different time and a different place, without the need for actual physical displacement.
Valley Stream is available at Samarah Fine Art, Whitefish, MT (Phone: (406) 862-3339), along with a number of other landscapes by the Norwegian Artist.
In addition to Steve’s works at Samarah Fine Art, more of the Norwegian Artist’s paintings are available for view and sale at Steve Henderson Fine Art Online Gallery. Rive Gauche Galleries, Scottsdale, AZ; The Lawrence Galleries, Sheridan and Gleneden Beach, OR; and the Maritime Museum at Mystic Seaport, CT.
