Thank you, Anne-Elizabeth, for the nice comments. I really appreciate it. As you well know, as an artist yourself and as described in your bio, words of encouragement really mean so much. I notice you are from Smithfield. I travel the state with my "real" job and just passed through a couple of weeks ago! :-)

Donna, I have been to Mabry Mill many times. I have happy memories from our family's visits there. We would always go to the restaurant there for pancakes (or as Daddy called them: "hotcakes".) This is a lovely painting. I like your description as well. (My father painted Mabry Mill many times, usually in the Fall season.)

Thanks, Roena. LOL! This one was not done en plein air, but was done from a photo we took sometime back. It just so happens that I'm heading out today for some plein air painting in this beautiful weather, though. Happy painting!

Lovely painting Donna. Is it en Plein Air? I have a friend who painted this location so I knew it as soon as I saw it. Concerning the "things" people see in our work. I once painted a scene people found a jack-o-lantern in the landscape and a cactus with 5 toes. RITFLOL I try to look now days at it for a bit before I post so I might see these things myself. All in fun!

Thanks, Will! I'm glad you like it. I was attempting a little different color palette here in honor of spring. I had not noticed the form of a woman. One of the fun things about art is hearing what others see/feel when viewing it.

Mill scenes are always nice and I love how you work with water and create the reflection of the object in the water. Did you see there is sort of a standing female figure in the upper right corner? Red hair and red boot and au natural otherwise.
