Back In The Bend

Had another extraordinary day in Totty's Bend. Got up early enough to see morning light and rising fog. This time of year the temperature changes make the landscape very dramatic and moody. From the color of the foliage to the fog and mist due to the collision of a temp difference.
This was painted on a high spot on my "haybale friend's" farm overlooking the Duck River as it curves around to form the lower end of Totty's Bend. The fog was following it right along the treeline and was about the only fog left as I finished the painting. Like everything else this time of year, it just goes by too fast.

When I first saw this painting and was reading that it was at Totty's Bend I immediately thought that must be the Duck River down there under the fog, and as I read more under the painting I see that it was indeed! I have spent much time there visiting family. One of the most beautiful places in the world!! Love your paintings. They are so alive.
