Potomac River Jam

about 6x11 pastel and watercolor on Uart
This weekend is the Potomac River Jam and I will be exhibiting a selection of my river paintings. This is one that I created at the Mountain Maryland Plein Air event, yet I was never really satisfied with it. I kept it on the wall at home and had to walk by it at least 12 times a day. Finally, yesterday, it screamed out to me..."this is what you need to do." I listened. Now it's finished. Yay!!!!

Isn't that always the case. It niggles you and niggles you and if you put it where you have to walk past it every 5 minutes eventually it will let you in on the secret. Whatever you did Loriann, its a lovely piece now.

Hi Lisa!
Thank you and thank you!

Hi Sheila! You are sooo right. It finally let me in on the secret. Sometimes it is VERY hard to be patient and wait for it to speak and for me not to put words in its mouth. Thank you!
