Art Escape

It's late July and I am spending the week away.  Away from work, house chores, family obligations, but not away from art.  Yesterday, I spent the day plein air painting with the U.P Plein Air Painters.  This is my painting for the day.  I went back and forth about how to approach this painting, as did the sunshine.  the day started out rather gray, but with very even lighting.  Then just as I finished blocking in the drawing, the sun came out, backlit the entire riverbank and turned the water into molten gold.

I was drawn to the tangle of roots in this area.  Strewn with lots of giant rocks, the ground is crawling with root formations.
