One of my nephews saw and older, large painting while he was here and fell in love with it. I promised to paint him a similar painting but smaller for his birthday in October. This is it.

About this painting

This is a favourite spot of ours in the summer. The river is Le Loup and at this point it goes through a mini canyon. In the hot days it is a cool and refreshing spot to sit and refresh ourselves under the shade of the trees. If we have visitors, especially children, they love to play in the cool, clear water which comes directly from the mountains. It still needs a few finishing touches when the paint has firmed up a bit.
