Saturday Plein Air - New Galena Boat Ramp, Alum Creek

We had about 24 artists painting today at Alum Creek. The New Galena Boat Ramp is one of my favorite spots at the park. This is the area where, last fall, I watched the Monarch butterfly migration.

I worked in oils today. My painting changed many times during the morning, so I will only show you the beginning and the end!

 We had a swan visit us today. He seemed confused that we didn't have fishing poles (well, most of the fishermen were confused by our presence also!)

Beautiful spot, and I love your painting, the soft gray-greens.
We have a big monarch butterfly migration here in southern NJ too!

Thanks Laura!Last fall was the first time I really had a good spot to actually notice the migration. It was so much fun!
