At River's Edge

At River's Edge - oil on panel - 6" x 6"
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!

If you like this painting, please share it. I love to see people enjoying my art! If you would like to buy it, click here.
