"Real Paintings"

I can't do "real paintings", the perfect landscapes that are so clear that I confuse them with photographs. I do impressions
and try to capture what it all feels like to me. This painting, acrylic on copper sheet, is my impression of the Mckenzie River, a famous river spitting distance from my house that Presidents have fished in! It is one of the cleanest rivers in the world and is full of Salmon and Steelhead. This is the 4th painting that I have ever done!

It looks watery to me Jerry.
and not everyone has to capture a photo-like appearance. There is a lot of beauty in impressionist paintings.
