Reports Of My Demise Have Been Greatly Exaggerated

This is a scene I've painted before, but every time it comes out just a little different.  It is possible this may be for sale - there is a customer who has first dibs on it - so if you're interested check in mid week next week, it may be available.
This is the view across the Sakonnet River, with the sun setting over Aquidneck Island, RI.  The cloud cover cracks open, and light streams down, and the sun sets illuminating the underside of the cloud.  Gets me every time.    I love the shimmer of the colors in the water.  Could I ever live without this view? Sure.  But I'd have hundreds of paintings of this no matter what!
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

I'm in NYC for a couple of days (and have had some personal issues that kept me away from the blogsphere for 7 whole days!) so I apologize for my absence, and I hope you all understand the craziness that our personal lives sometimes impose on us keeping us from our easels!
Below is the inspiration for a commission I'm working on.  When I arrive at Penn Station where do you think I head?  Krispy Kreme, of course!!!!  And being New Yorkers they feel compelled to tell us how many calories are in each kind of donut - you know, so you can choose the Original Glazed rather than the Chocolate Frosted Creme filled - for health reasons!!!

    I am proud to tell you that Krispy Kreme donuts originated right here in my home state of North Carolina!
