Maybe we will see/have this scene soon!
This will be a donation for a silent auction at a cancer fundraiser next week.
Any tweaks needed?

I thought at first it was the photo reference. Very good Ruthie. Lot's of painstaking work to get that bridge to look realistic. Hope it sells for s fine price.

It is lovely! that distant shore is gorgeous!

Is there a bridge support missing across the river there Ruthie? Looks like the span is needing something under it!:eek: - other than that, maybe a little bark texture on the foreground trees ...... but overall, it's really lovely.:)

I like what you've done here Ruthie.
Excellent compositional setup.
Well painted. Mum has a good point about the support.

Thank You Everyone!
Maureen, I took a look at my ref and you are right--it is hidden by the trees, but I can tweak it to show a hint of the support! Thanks!!

Really lovely! Since the Missouri flows by Omaha, this looks like a bit of home. Nice!
