This was one of those special mornings on the river. It was a cool summer morning, the sun was up but it had not gotten hot yet. The colors on the river were "cool". I really enjoyed painting this picture and trying to capture nature's artwork. I was nearly finished when I said to myself, I need to put some boats in here. My wishes came true! Two sailboats came by, so I added them to my painting. It just gave it more life.
