60 degrees today!! A few artist friends met at Fort Hunter to paint the receding ice. It was a spectacular sight on the river. The ice had broken into interesting abstract shapes that were contrasted by the surrounding dark water. You could hear the massive sheets of ice sliding and crunching against each other as they were pushed downstream.
I painted this 6x8 study of the ice.
It was refreshing to be out painting again after months of cold grayness, and we all felt our spirits renewed.
