This view is from the Fort Madison Art Center's garden tour. I painted this ahead from a combination of on site and photo reference. This view is from 115 Young street in Nauvoo, IL. There were lots of great views and gardeners sharing their expertise. The Mississippi is muddy so that is what I see in the water. Sometimes I manage to find a stream that runs fairly clear. There has been a lot of rain lately that stirs up the mud.
