We went to a place called Widewater along the historic C & O Canal along the Potomac River. We could have painted the canal itself, but nearby we saw this spectacular view from a small sandy beach. We were on the Maryland side, looking out the Virginian bank of the river. Look at those magnificent rocks! Yes, the river was muddy thanks to all the rain, but we could still see colors of the rocks and trees reflected in the water. Goody! I painted fearlessly, not worrying about getting all the cracks and trees right. Who cares? We were just glad to be out there.
