12" X 12" Oil on Canvas Board
Day Thirteen - 30 in 30 Challenge
Barely made this one! Had to work on a painting for an upcoming show and the challenge painting got a short day!
Working from photos and memories from many days spent in the Brooksville, Istachatta and Floral City areas riding dirt bikes, canoeing, bicycling the trail enjoying every single day and evening, I attempted to paint the misty river. Creating this painting is a reminder that it's time to return to the adventures and serene beauty of the Withlacoochee.
Withlacoochee is an Indian word meaning "crooked river" which accurately describes the river as it makes its 70-mile journey from the Green Swamp in northern Polk County to the Gulf of Mexico at Yankeetown.
