Story Behind the Painting

This horizontal original oil painting is titled "First Blades" and is 24x12". The painting is of the Chicago River in Harms Woods in Glenview, IL early April when we finally start to see hints of Spring growing in the shade of Winter woodlands. While too cold at this point to paint the scene ala plein air - I have studied this stretch of water considerably and think this time of year has the most striking color profile.
