Sunrise above the Falls

"Sunrise Above the Falls"___7 x 5 oil on linen panel___$100
A week ago I woke up in Gadsden, AL, ready to begin my week painting at the Southeastern Plein Air Festival. I was staying at this great little cabin above Noccoloola Falls, in a very secluded part of a campground. The water was roaring below and the morning was cool and bright. This was my very frst painting there. Each morning I started with a tiny canvas...painting quick and loose, not allowing myself any "oil changes", but just leaving it there as a sketch...THis one came out OK, I guess... My favorite part was when a couple geese flew by. See them up between the branches on the right side?
I will teach my "warm-up" technique at the Fredericksburg workshop in June (5-7). Please e-mail me if you wnat some details vvaughan8@yahoo.com
* While travelling I lost a few mails :( I had a couple e-mails about the workshop last week...if that was you, PLEASE write back! :)
