Rio Grande at Caballo, NM

The Rio Grande at Caballo, NM

8x6in oil on canvas board $100'

Yesterday I posted the view from more or less the same spot only I was facing west.
This painting needed patience to paint because they would release the water from the reservoir and it would churn along past my spot, all brown with not a reflection in sight. I tried to figure out how long this would take before the reflections came back but then the light had changed so much that I almost gave up. This is such an amazingly beautiful spot I could not do it justice but the joy of painting is... I can keep trying.
