BEFORE THE BOATS COME
An hour before my class I am at the river, looking at the variety of things to paint. It’s the beginning of a sunny day, boat traffic is light, and the rich blue sky is reflecting nicely in the water. I don’t have much time, so I do a quick study of the colors on the water. It’s peaceful this early, even on a Saturday, but I know it won’t last.
