Water Under the Bridge study 2

Reflections are more than illusion. Nearby objects color our lives, influence our existence whether we notice it or not, whether we wish for it or not.

This painting is another view of the Pootatuck River, colored by autumn foliage and nearby buildings housing Chao restaurant and Mocha coffeehouse, at the cozy heart of Sandy Hook, Connecticut. On Memorial Day, this is the sight of The Great Pootatuck Duck Race, not to be missed!

Today's painting is about 5" x 7" acrylic on gessoed mat board, protected in a cream-colored mat. As with all these little studies, the text above is handwritten on the back of the painting, which is also signed and dated.
