In a small ghost town nestled at the edge of the vast landscape of Oregon's Alvord Desert near Steens Mountain, artist John Simpkins has turned a one-room schoolhouse into a working studio. For the past seven years, Simpkins, with only his dog for company, has lived and painted in the schoolhouse, one of the few buildings still standing in Andrews - a town that was home to a mere 150 people during its prime at the turn of the century.

Now she's getting set to launch a fiddle class through Sisters Park & Recreation District - and she's looking for fiddles to help the class get its start.

The ranch is a lovely parcel of land consisting of pine forests, open meadows, and spectacular mountain views. What makes it special is the abundance of vegetation normally seen on the west side of the Cascades - towering Douglas fir trees, a large spring-fed pond surrounded by lush green plants, grasses, and dense stands of horsetail reeds.

Running commentary
Tuesday, October 16, 2018
