Winter on the Guadalupe River


12x16 oil on stretched cotton canvas
$600 (email me if interested)

This view of the river is behind our house. I think winter is just as beautiful on the river. I love the golden hues against the green water. We have not had any rain to speak of in the last 9 months. The river is so dry in some spots it has just a trickle. The bank on the left of the painting is usually under water. I think my favorite part of the painting is the two small patches of cerulean blue reflecting in the water. I saved that for the very last thing to brush on. All along the river bed are huge cottonwoods and cypress trees. The lot next to us has a cottonwood that the owners wanted to have measured and registered it is so big. We have lived here for 15 years and have seen the river dried up and two floods, one a hundred year flood.
