Melting Ice

Oil on Linen Panel
10 X 10

Plein air painting done at Forest Park in Saint Louis during the weekly outings with the Missouri Plein Air Painters Association. It was a splendid sunny day with temperatures around 45 degrees. I was drawn to the ice that was staring to melt on the surface of the waters under shadow, while the waters exposed to the warmth of the sun were vibrant with life.
