river at sunset


24"x24" oil/canvas



















24"x24" oil/canvas

finished the two paintings for the conference room. The river is a predominate subject around here and it never gets old. Visually, I find it to be the most outstanding thing in Harrisburg. The bridges are a strong second but incredibly challenging to paint. The river proves calming in summer yet can flood almost the entire city at times.

Thanks Loriann. The original was 6"x6" done last winter. I wasn't sure if the big one would have the same feeling. I'm glad to hear you feel the calmness.

I think you captured both the sky and the river in these pieces. I like the calm feeling in the 1st one, and the diagonals vs the horizontals in the 2nd.
