February Ice by Cathy Mabius

9 x 12, oil on board
Afternoon of Feb 17th

I traveled up river and to the east shore to join another group of plein air painters in the afternoon. 
The scene:  Susquehanna River from Fort Hunter looking to Marysville, PA. 

Luckily I had big rubber boots because the mud on the bank was at least 2 inches deep, but what a view.  Hearing the ice break up and chunks fall into the river felt like I was on a glacier (on a small scale.)
