Alone At Turning Point, by Gordon van Vliet
Have you ever been at a crossroads in your life? Did you have a big decision to make?
At time like these sometimes we need solitude... a place alone to ponder the possibilities.. to sort things out. I know I enjoy the time alone. It helps to clarify and identify what needs to be done. When I have come to a resolution, then I can move on. Refreshed.
So here I have presented a small painting. About 8" x 6" and paint at what is locally called Turning Point Park on the lower Genesee River. See Map to Turning Point Park for directions. Here is a wide area where cement barges came up the river to unload their wares and then turn around.
Today there is a wonderful paved walk that eventually will connect downtown Rochester to the port at Charlotte. If you live in the area you owe it to yourself to visit. Bring some problems. You may be amazed that they disappear!
I also painted this evening with Todd Ryan (his work is in the center) and Enrique (work on right). Not shown is a charcoal sketch by Bing. He is new and joining our little art group. I will have more on him as I learn more.Link
