The Dam on the Hillsbourgh 16x20 pastel

I started this pastel a couple of years ago and painted the boy in last night. This river and I have a long history, on this very spot I slipped of a rock into the water when I skipped school in the 4th grade also a friend and I were swept away during a flood and was saved by her brother. The river is in the park where I play tennis on Sunday and its views must hold a 1000 paintings this is probably number 12 for me.
