Along the River

I just dropped this painting off at the Fairfield Art Association Member Show in Fairfield, Iowa.

In October Carlene Dingman Atwater and I went out to paint for a few hours along the Des Moines River in Farmington, Iowa.  
We set up undercover at the picnic shelter "just in case".  
The sun came out from beneath the clouds for a moment before the storm hit.

Lightening, thunder and wind challenged us but we persevered.  
And then I went back to the studio and "fixed" my painting.

                                  "Autumn Finale".  12" x 12". Oil on Canvas
