Bear River Valley Watercolors

A selection of watercolors painted by our family member, Bill McBride, of the beautiful views of our Bear River Valley. With views of the Pacific Ocean from atop the Bear River Ridge, and breathtaking scenes from all around our beautiful valley.  Each painting is a one-of-a-kind, original watercolor, custom framed for your enjoyment.

Bill is our dad, and retired rancher of the Seattle and Bonanza Ranches that make up the Bear River Valley Beef business.

Bill is in his 80's now and is an avid painter, as well as being a talented writer and local musician.

A note from Bill: "My paintings are “En Plein Air” impressionisms. I seriously started painting watercolors around 1960 and now I am retired I really enjoy adding to my gallery of art. I am painting the mood that I get from a scene, more than photo realism.
I plan to spend more time on my 1997 Valkyrie Motorcycle with my art easel creating more artistic renderings of places I enjoy. I like to paint along my favorite Highway 1, but there are few places to park for painting with a car. With a motorcycle you can park along a shoulder and capture the scenery. All my painting gear fits on my motorcycle."

Each painting ships as a solo item, separate from your meat order.
