MANY SUMMER MEMORIES ( 10 x 14 ) acrylic

One of my favorite locations in NW Iowa that is not filled with corn.  On River Road we see a picnic table that has had many years of use by George B. and  his wife (both in their 90's?) who live just around the bend or over the hill.  The cedars line the hills here as the river cuts into its dirt banks.  This is a studio acrylic based on many visits with my pastels which I have used to work directly from observation.  I did the red table a little stronger as this was to also relate to Valentines Day in a local show.
