Glitter Lit

"Glitter Lit"
11x14 oil on linen panel

The St Croix October, 2010 painted from William OBrien State Park, just north of Stillwater and Marine during the flood. The water is unusually high, especially for this time of year. The water in front of the tree is actually the parking lot, the water behind the tree is the river, two totally separate waters in the same painting. This back lit situation with two separate bodies of water - moving water, calm water, high glare from the sun and reflection from the tree was an interesting challenge to paint.

Love this one Kami! Beautiful feeling of the canopy of filtered backlight and the rich color of that situation. And it feels 'wet'. :-) Good job.

This is stunning! I love the subtle tones you used within the brilliant yellow leaves - not an easy task, and it has really made this a magnificent painting.
