Riverwalk Casa Rio -Sold


Riverwalk Casa Rio, 14 x 11, oil on panel
I may have just noodled this painting to a faretheewell since I can't see a single other thing I could do to it. It's growing on me, though. I ride the express bus to and from downtown where the gallery is, I may have mentioned. One of my 'bus friends' is Juana, who has worked at Casa Rio for many years. I always show her what I've painted recently by showing the images on my camera. When she saw the original version, she asked where she was in the painting. So I took a photo of her from the back and tucked her in the scene. Good idea, Juana!
I'm going to try to paint tonight online... come by www.ustream.tv/channel/susancarlin at 6 Central time if you can.

Hi Susan,

It's therapy for me just looking at it. The umbrellas and the water create the most peaceful feeling. After a long day of teaching I really appreciate the joy in it.

The finished version is stunning, I love the light reflecting on the water, it has much more zip to it now you have worked on the water, good job.

Outstanding finish! I love art as it makes you feel like you are there. This painting reminds me of our mini vacation Carolyn and I took to San Antonio and met you in the studio. The colors and reflections on your painting sparkle like the riverwalk.
