Shawnee State Park
Hi Everyone, Our last camping trip for the season we went to visit Shawnee State Park, it is near Portsmouth, Ohio. In Portsmouth they have a huge flood wall that is painted with all of these different murals depicting the history of the town. Very interesting, worth a visit. I always love getting up close to artwork to see the brushstrokes and with huge murals like this it is so interesting to see how they read from a distance and then to get right up on them and view the artists work.
Anyway while we were in the campground I started this painting and finished it later with my reference photos, it is oil on a 8 x 10 Raymar panel. Let me say that I feel like a lucky woman when I am outside painting and the weather is great, I am so blessed to have painting in my life. I am blessed for so many reasons, of course my wonderful family and I am blessed to have so many friends that visit my blog and collect my art. I love blogging and I appreciate your visits and love reading your comments.
