Boiling Springs Lake watercolor

Fall Afternoon at Boiling Springs Lake
6" x9" watercolor
Saturday the 8th and Sunday the 9th of October were beautiful days to paint plein air.  Boiling Springs Lake was alive with children, dogs, walkers and runners; even a young couple were posing for their photographer for their wedding portrait at the nearby gazebo.  Ducks were being fed by young and old alike.  The frenzy when they tossed the corn created quite a raucous among the feathered residents and made ripple upon ripple on the water's surface.

Tomorrow, I'll be going to Harpers Ferry; it's a place I've heard of but never have been before.  I don't know much about the history there so tonight I'll try to get a little bit of education about it.  I am meeting fellow plein air artist Claire B Carnell in the morning to travel there and meet another artist.  I'm looking forward to another plein air adventure and so far, it looks like it's going to be another beautiful day.

This is a favorite scene of mine in Boiling Springs. You did such a nice job with it.
I have been to Harper's Ferry, but never painted there. The old town is neat to walk around. Hope you have fun!
