Oil On Canvas
Framed, Ready to Hang
The Oxley River winds its way through the valley below Mt Warning in Northern NSW. Its destination is the Tweed River at Tweed Heads.
I was driving through the area on the never ending search for subjects to paint.
On this particular day I was having no luck at all finding a good subject. Sometimes the best subjects are hard to locate from the car when you are travelling around winding roads that require maximum concentration.
So I gave up in despair and decided to head home for the day. It was getting later in the day and the sun was starting to go down.
Then as I came around a blind corner there it was ... a bend in the Oxley River lit up with the warmth of the afternoon sun.
Problem was there was no where to pull over. I ended up about a kilometer away before I could find a safe parking spot. Determined though I walked back along the road hoping the light wouldn't change to much.
The result is this painting. Hope you like it.
