Oil on Linen
24 X 36
I have worked on this piece for some time now, put it away for a while and picked it up again until I got what I was after. This beautiful scenery if from Johnson Shut Inns State Park in Missouri where there are giant boulders in the East Fork Black River. The term “shut-in” refers to a place where the river’s breadth is limited by hard rock that is resistant to erosion.
This painting shows the end of the rocky area where the river becomes a shallow pool.
