After driving around all morning and having great difficulty getting to this river, suddenly we came to a bridge and I managed to scramble down to the water. I took photo's and decided to setup my easel. This painting is a studio painting but retains much of the excitment and feel of what it was to be along the river.
I was excited and happy to be here and I hope it shows in the painting. To be so completely happy is the only way to describe what it is like to paint plein air.
