This is along the Cheat River near Parsons, WV. I was painting, plein air, with friends, Judy, Maria, and Nancy. Since I couldn't paint everything, I took some photos for future reference--and here is the result! It is the beauty and glow of the backlit trees that really excites me about this! But also I like the gesture of the trees. It had been one of those overcast days. When the sun finally came out, there was a feeling of exaltation, which I tried to capture in this painting!
