Penitentiary Glen

SOLDI painted this scene from a chunk of ice in the middle of a stream. It is a view of Penitentiary Glen, at the bottom of the stairs, looking upstream towards the steep rock walls that inspired the name of this park.

This is absolutely beautiful Jim! I particularly enjoy the way you painted the fallen trees, so lifelike and yet so painterly. Good work. nancy

Thanks, Nancy. I set up my easel on the ice in the middle of the stream to get this. It is 24" 30", the largest plein air I've done to date. It's fun to paint that big!
