One of my final paintings from the summer was this painting of the campers in the field, through the red gate, by the river. It is a true labor of love, in that the field was painted with so many layers of paint, I could almost have planted grass easier. The end result is worth it to me, being a true march through the hot field to the brightly colored trailers and the mountain wall, more turquoise that teal, with the heat of the day making the whole painting an homage to summer.

This whole series came from seeing travel campers set up at the river edge on the Cowpasture River in Bath County, Va where I spent most of my summer. To be honest, the hot pink trailers were few and far between but…. As I would drive to town, I would have the windows down and listening to my favorite music and blasting the AC at the same time and see these little settlements of campers just right at the river. You can tell the river edge, but the way, by the tree line. Mine is painted overly simplistic, but there is field, trees, river, mountain and then came the campers. This is my opus to the campers and their perfect day.
