ROAD TO THE RIVER By Cecelia Lyden



oil/board
8x10

 My first attempt to paint this snippet of Wormleysburg and the Susquehanna River was unsatisfactory. The sky was overcast and the light was flat. I went back to the same spot the next day. The morning sun was shining and the shadows, deep-so much more interestng painting the road, river, houses and trees.
