Floatin' on the Pomme de terre River

I photographed this last year. Don't you know these people were having a ball on this beautiful autumn day. This is a 16x20 Golden Open Acrylic. It looks quite bright as I photographed the painting in bright sun. I never quite know if sun or shade is the best. I think this one is painted on a Fredrix linen panel. It was fun, especially after doing so many little paintings lately. It is $450.00.  Note:  This painting was hanging in Fresh Gallery in Springfield, Mo. and these people in this canoe visited the gallery.  They recognized it as themselves and called me to verify the location, time of year etc.. Of course, they had to have it!!  I had met the woman at Evening Shade Farms, Osceola, Mo., where they make all kinds of wonderful natural soaps and other products.  I buy my soaps there a lot.  They have a website and you can order from there online.  Of course, I did not recognize her in the boat that day as I used a zoom lens to photograph such a lovely scene.  Such a small wonderful world we live in.  I hope they are enjoying the painting.  It made quite an interesting story.

Just to let you know Peggy, the painting of us Floatin on the Pomme is hanging on our Living Room Wall and we love looking at it every day. It brings back wonderful memories of that lovely fall day and our float trip with our daughter. We feel very blessed to have it and to have spotted it at the Gallery that night we feel was no accident We love having a piece of your wonderful art work and it will stay in the family as our daughter will get it sometime in the distant future.
