I'm not always the best at lettling people know where I am, today and tomorrow I will be at the Hidden River show in Brookfield, where I was born. On the first weekend in October, I will be at St. James Court in Louisville, KY.
This image is of a slough south of Goose Island in the fog. I painted it in three sittings because the distance of it was just so you could see this only as the fog was lifting. So it changed quickly and was quite fun to paint something that was moving. I can't wait to get back to the river next week, for everything is changing. The lotus plants have mainly died and were orange when I painted this. The trees are starting to turn, the main channel is filled with decaying vegation floating downstream, summer is seemingly grasping for air. I am always stunned to see how fast things change on the river even in a stable weather pattern like we have been experiencing.
