Espensheid April

Espensheid April; Oil on Canvas Panel 9″ x 12″

A plein air painting. The Kishwaukee River winds through this preserve in northern Illinois. It had rained during the early morning hours. It was overcast and rain threatened but I went out to paint anyway. Almost no breeze. The only sounds were those of the rushing waters and the occasional honks from the migrating geese. Only a couple hikers investigated my workings. Glad I went painting this day, although, I discovered that I REALLY NEED a new pair of hiking boots (leaky shoes create wet socks, cause cold feet).
