Islands on Ice by Cathy Mabius

11 x 14, plein air on morning of Feb 17th 

It was a record breaking 68 degrees on Friday.
The scene: Susquehanna River looking south 
from the West Fairview boat ramp. 
The warm weather was allowing the river ice to
 start to break up and drift down stream. 
 We were serenaded by geese and
 ducks and gulls. It was truly a divine day.

      It's a good sign of spring when plein air painters 
start to gather with easels and paint brushes in hand.
  This scene painted in the morning with one group of painters...

Nice reflections, really looks cold and clear. A very productive two days. Sharon

Beautiful work, Cathy. Definitely captures the winter light.

THE "WINTER LIGHT" MAKES THE SCENE LOOK CLEAN, CRISP AND COLD--SUCH A NICE PAINTING.
