Inspired by a swim in the cool waters of a crystal clear river in England, I could imagine all of the wonderful "Wind in the Willows" characters enjoying their day on the water with me. The cares of the world drift away in a place like this. Wildflowers are blooming and the day could not be finer. Impressionistic and heavily textured layers make this painting a contemporary treasure. 36” x 36" on gallery wrapped canvas, ready to hang.
