Quiet Day

While I am working on my latest colored pencil piece, I thought I would go ahead and post another painting for you. This is #55 of my 100 painting project. It is a scene from a nearby walking trail, that follows a river that runs through town. It still doesn't seem right to me, calling these mountain streams "rivers", but they are. Rivers at their start. I guess I'll just never get used to that. They all look like creeks to me.

Beautifully done, Ann. On my blog, I thought the thumbnail was a photograph! What a masterful job on the reflection in the 'river' too! I too am often a bit startled when a creek or stream is called a river.

Would this be a good place for paddling and fishing? Great painting!

It's just lovely. I love the reflections on the water, and the composition is beautiful! nancy

Cathy, most of the time it would be a bit shallow for paddling, although we do occasionally see folks fishing here. And the dogs love splashing around in the water too.

Thanks all for your kind comments!

I LOVE LOVE LOVE this Ann!!! It's just wonderful...the blackness of the tree trunks, the water, the grasses, the greenery. It's all just wonderful.

All I need to do now is find a way to enter your painting, sit down at the base of the tree with my sketchbook and gaze upon nature's beauty. Wonderful scene, Ann.
