The deadline is today for the Oil painters of America entries. It's 1:30AM, I just completed this one so I made my deadline. After I post and get some sleep I'll submit it on-line. Wish me luck!

Last September I made the trip out to the state I was born, the beautiful garden state of New Jersey.  Lambertville is a beautiful old town along the Delaware river directly across from New Hope, PA. The Delaware Canal runs right through the middle of town. If you visit be sure to check out my work at the des Champs Gallery.

I really had to get bold with some thick paint to bring out the light but I think it works.

I think it works, too. This is lovely.
Good luck!
Now, get some sleep!
