Big River

While I wait for layers to dry on The Wasp Jar, I created a painting of an area I've had my eye on for a long time.  You know how you see a place out of the corner of your eye every day and mean to stop and capture it but you never do?  Well, today I did.

This river runs under a bridge I cross daily enroute to work.  Called 'Big River', its deep and fast moving and this is one of its narrowest channels, quite popular with fishing people.  I see this little corner of the riverbank with its dark water, flecked with foam from the fast moving water, but still as well further out.  The last colours of autumn are hanging in the leaves on alder bushes and the russet remains of taller plants constrast against the paling grasses.

Oil on 8" x 8" canvas board.

I love looking at those little quiet corners of the world. The soft autumnal colours of this one are gorgeous. I feel sure this one will find a new home very quickly.
