"Sycamore Beside the New River"

This past weekend we attempted to escape the heat and traveled to Jefferson, NC.  We visited friends in Crumpler and had a wonderful riparian afternoon and picnic alongside of the New River at their delightful setting there.  I enjoyed sketching this magnificent sycamore while embracing the soft trickling sounds of the  river and general peace and beauty of my surroundings.

  1. Riparian afternoon. I love it! Reminded me of an episode of 'Keeping Up Appearances' where Hyacinth Bucket (pronounced bouquet) invited her friends to a picnic with riparian entertainment. It was a hilarious disaster. Love this little painting.

  2. Thanks, Wendy! I saw that episode and that's exactly where I got the idea for my title! We do love "our Hyacinth" don't we.
