Finally some time to update my blog! I have been really busy completing work for the Waterfowl Festival happening this weekend in Easton MD. The dates are: Friday Nov 14th to Sunday Nov 16th. Hours are generally 10:00 to 6:00. I will be in the Elks Lodge with many new paintings so please drop by and say hello. Website address is: http://www.waterfowlfestival.org/, e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org. I hope to find some time next week to post some of these paintings here.
Shown above is the finished River Rocks painting, one that I will be showing this weekend. Although this one took a lot of work, I was pleased with the finished result. I felt it captured what I saw and felt back when I initially saw this scene. Although I have changed the composition somewhat to comply with my wishes, when looking at this painting I am immediately transported back to the wonderful time I spent at the river. In the end I suppose, all we can do as artists is try to please ourselves and at least in this one, I felt that I have. This oil on board is 16" X 12".
