Acrylic 6"x8" Canvas Board
This little painting was done on the banks of the Buffalo River in Minnesota on a morning in June. The sun was hitting the sandbar across the river from me and turned the middleground of the painting into the center of interest. I've tried to paint this spot many times, and so far this is the closest I've come to capturing the layers of trees going back into the distance and the winding river flowing past me out the right side of the painting. I can look at this and hear the water and feel the breeze. That's one of the best parts of painting on location...the scene is forever etched in your memory and on your senses.
