|ST. JOE RIVER SUNRISE
It has been since painting Birch Mirage that I felt compelled to paint a “long painting”. I knew I wanted a landscape and preferably a water reflection. My
friend Ned Fox was gracious enough to allow me to go through some of his photographs of the St. Joe River and choose one I could elongate and
change the mood with color.
The hope was to create a serene painting that would be a calming force. It had been quite awhile since I painted in this format. Fortunately I was also
taking a studio class from Stan Miller and between the two of us I was able to get back on track and create a piece that reminds me of some the old “turn
of the century” oil paintings, that were muted colors and moody. Small things like the sun’s reflection on the river and the mist rising in the shadows are
some of the subtle elements that hopefully draw you in.
