RIPPLES AND REFLECTIONS
Ripples and Reflections, 24 x 12 oil
The clouds are breaking up. The river is mostly still, with a few ripples expanding as they come forward. Nearer the front of the painting, I can see into the water in the shadow of the trees. This painting takes me two days, as I'm painting this larger panel all on location for the Lake Oswego Chronicle show in June.
As a plein air painter, I spend many contented hours sitting in some inspiring spot with the sights and sounds of the outdoors, capturing my impressions of light and color. Back in the studio, these works expand, recreating a particular place in a special moment.
