Late August Light!

"Late August Early Morning Light"
10x8 oil on linen

"River Trees"
8x10 oil on linen

I was out early yesterday morning on the river, what a beautiful morning!  The top piece was done at first light, very early and the second mid morning into noon.  It felt great to be out on the river painting again.  The river's been so high this year that it's been difficult to find a piece of shore line to stand on, it's now finally going down and is lovely!

Thank you Maggie! This is such a great time of year to paint around here. The colors are so warm, especially by the river and the light is rich! :)
