Tom painted this beautiful, quiet scene on the Ohio River. He wrote:

As evening comes along the banks of the Ohio River, the water is quiet and smooth. You see reflections of trees, along with the boats put to bed for the night.

You will see atmospheric perspective in this painting. The closest boat is painted larger than the one further away. The colors of the trees go from warm greens to pale blue.

When I paint, I find myself squinting. I am trying to minimalise what I see and I’m going into almost a trance to feel the emotion or magic of each scene.

This painting gives me such a sense of tranquility. I can almost see the boats moving gently and hear the water lapping at them.

I love seeing painting you have done that I may have forgotten about. This is a really nice peaceful one. I am so glad you are coming home from the hospital. Can’t wait to see the new things you do once you start feeling better!

This painting brings back the memory of going with you to your art opening and of crossing the beautiful Ohio River. It’s magic!
