Oyster River
9x12, oil/linen panel

This is a beautiful spot to paint! Sandpipers, cormorants, gulls and terns all kept me company as I painted. Although I was hoping that the sun would still be out when I got there I think the gray sky is a nice foil for the reds, and oranges in the tree foilage. It was very chilly this afternoon, I'll have to start wearing gloves from now on when I paint !


The sky is low, the clouds are mean,
A traveling flake of snow
Across a barn or through a rut
Debates if it will go.
A narrow wind complains all day
How some one treated him;
Nature, like us, is sometimes caught
Without her diadem.

Emily Dickinson
