Riverview at Bonaparte Iowa

Finished at the last volunteer portrait session, just need to tweak it now. Pulled up a photo on my challenge list. Capturing the many rocks in the water and the distant shoreline make this a scene I need to work on. I also started with a white canvas, not ideal.
8" x 8" oil on canvas 


  1. Congrats on completing a significant project! Were you influenced by Jessica's idea to paint warm subjects in the cold weather?

    1. Jessica's painting scenes that challenge her. I should try timing myself as well. It does make you feel excited for spring when painting warm scenes.

  2. Yes, congratulations on all the portraits. Let us know when the show is so we can put out the word.
