This painting is one of the first where the presence of people can be found in the mountains. In a very brief way, the campers are shown in the little break in the trees by the riverside.

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.
