Hours By the River

I've been up Sugar Hollow by the Moorman's River to paint river rocks several days this week, by the rushing water. My father kept me company, reading nearby. The painting is a challenge. Not only does the light change as the hours pass, but so does the water level. The photographs below show how the view (and along with it, the painting) evolved — not my intent. Who knows what tomorrow will bring. I may have to return to the original photo to finish the 24x36 painting with its reflections, ripples and wet rocks.
