2015-10-30 It’s getting crowded at the Crag

Though I have hiked out to the crag several times, I was amazed at how many folks shared the trail with us this pleasant sunny Monday.  The parking places were full, and at least a dozen amateur photographers were snapping pictures on this colorful fall day of the “most photographed spot” in Arkansas.  The painters privilege is to leave those kind folks out of the picture.

This 18X24 Framed Original Acrylic Painting on canvas is available at the Nelms Gallery in Jasper .  A limited number of 8×10 prints are available matted to 11×14 with or without frames.

Jennifer and I loaded up the paints and easel in the van, and took off early one October morning driving down the Buffalo River from park to Park looking for the ideal spot to plein air paint.  We had intended to find that perfect spot to paint, and camp overnight. I spent the whole day dragging her around looking for that picturesque spot with perfect fall color.  After spending the day driving around the river thinking about how pretty “our” part of the Buffalo was (the upper Buffalo), we returned home in the evening, tired and defeated. The next day I woke up, and walked out on the front porch, and painted this in the front yard.

This 11X14 Framed Acrylic Painting is in Jennifers collection. 8×10 Prints matted to 11X14 are available with or without a frame.
