Kishwaukee Calm, Plein Air Oil on Canvas Panel 8″ x 10″

Had not painted at this park in a long time. I have created quite a few works out here. Hate the idea of being redundant. Of repeating myself. Of painting the same thing over and over again. But since it has been awhile, I figured that either my eyes would see something different, or see something which I had not seen before or even that I might even bring something different to the design.

I arrived at the park, took a quick ride through the park (it is a small park) and settled upon this scene. The sunlight coming over the tops of the trees on the east side of the river caught my eye,,,and my imagination. Quiet and peaceful. A few other visitors to the park but they kept their distance.  I did notice a fellow fishing about a hundred yards south of my spot. I could see him looking at me every now and then. I assume that he was curious about what I was doing. I worked undisturbed until a group of kayakers drifted past and made comments. I attempted to ignore their banter though they persisted. Thank goodness that the current kept them moving to the south.
