New Waterford

This creek runs through the center of the Village of New Waterford. The fine snow was still falling while I painted this scene. I painted until the paint became too stiff to move and granules of ice acted like sand in the paint. I was almost finished anyway. Still, even though I had taken a photo, I returned to do a few finishing touches a couple days later. There were some lovely reflections in the water. I was about to put in when 20 or so ducks swam over and stirred up the water, obliterating the reflections. 12" X 16" oil painting $475

Hello Nancy,

You captured a lovely scene in this painting. There is a stillness in such winter scenery, and I think that you conveyed that.

Blessings in Christ,

Hi Nancy.
This is a brilliant painting, I love it. All the best.

I agree with Robert. Marvelous painting. I love how that house sits back quietly and supports the other side of the painting with the stream going back in space. Great design, great execution.

Thanks everyone. This is still one of my all time favorites.
