daily painting practice - Missouri River Morning

Finished with this one. Only one more painting left to go for the show. Then the only thing left to do is photograph all the pieces so I can begin to deliver them on Friday.

Missouri River Morning
oil on canvas

This one is a little different in style. I really was after that early morning glow when everything seems to be tonally singing the same tune. I was walking along the banks of the Missouri River about 12 miles north of Omaha, after an early morning rain. It was in early spring, when the sun began poking through the clouds. This was the best time to paint.... before the bugs come out.
