I wish I had a river...
Well, actually I have many — the Nashua, Assabet, Sudbury and Concord Rivers now, and the mighty Merrimack and its tributary, the Shawsheen, which ran under Central Street in Andover, MA when I lived there. Much of the rich industrial history of New Hampshire and Massachusetts was built upon these two rivers. I love rivers, maybe even more than oceans. And I love painting them. Here's a pair of small oils on canvas that I've entered into a juried show this coming Fall.
Shawsheen #1 and Shawsheen #2. 8" x 8" and 10" x 10", respectively.
