I painted this by the steps next to the river at Potter's Bridge. It was quiet along the river that morning. The water was calm, and in the background was the sounds of birds singing.
When I was have way through, there were three men and a three year old little boy getting ready to go kayaking. It was amazing to me that the dad of the little boy gave his son a kayak of his own to paddle down stream. Of course the dad had his son's kayak tied to his, so nothing would go wrong. I thought that's a lot of trust, and a great way to teach your child how to be independent later.
I also met a photographer who lived and had a studio in the same town as me. It sure is a small world. She asked if she could take my a photo of me painting the river, for a contest she was entering. I hope she wins!
There always seems to be something interesting going on around me when I am plein air painting. Life never seems to be boring.
