Susquehanna Sunset 3

8x8 oil/hangable panel

Another sunset, yet doesn't appear to be. Total clear sky, so I looked south down river. Came up with this image. I honestly am not sure what happened here. The time of day appears completely wrong yet while painting I was pretty sure it was accurate. I'm going to study the river till I get it right. Ouch, painting is tough!

Oh Brian seems like you have been bitten by the river bug..and once it happens you can never get away. You have done a number of very different (a la Monet) paintings that perfectly describe the ever changing body of water, your river. I can't wait to see where this new "obsession" will take you.

Yeah Loriann, I think the bug has bit. Come summer the mosquitos will bite. Before too long the mayflies will be hatching, adding some wonderful texture to the paint. I do love the river but so far it is winning the battle.Will try it today during strong light.
