Looks like a wintery morning with the snow among the river. I could be wrong. The lighting is key on point in this piece. The title is correct to my thoughts as the word that comes to mind is Gold. Feels like a cropped piece of scenery of a bigger piece but that's fine, just showing this patch of river is fine on its own. -Ariel "minespatch" Baron

I keep trying to capture the golden glow on the water of the sun hitting the opposite hillside. Still working at it,

Biography
I loved to draw and paint as a child and began doing pencil portraits (and teacher caricatures) as a teenager.  My first oil portrait was of my father prior to his death from cancer when I was 19. Painting in oils always fascinated me after hearing tales and seeing the works of my grandmother Helen Clayton, a farmer's wife who raised five boys, sewed extraordinary quilts and was a talented oil painter as well.  A treasured childhood memory is that of my father teaching me some of my grandmother's techniques such as enlarging images with a grid and how to create form by varying the values of a drawing.     
    My career choice was impacted by my father's death and I became a physician, only returning to painting in 1997 when I began to take portrait, landscape and color theory classes at the Gage Academy of Fine Art.  After two years of trying to balance my infatuation with art with the demands of a community clinic physician's practice, I was fortunate enough to be able to follow my passion and I began to paint in earnest.  At the Academy I studied under Juliette Aristides, Mitch Albala, Tony Ryder, Charles Emerson and others.  At the Scottsdale Art School I studied with Peggy Kroll-Roberts, Kenn Backhaus and Kim English.  I learned to understand the power of the temperature of the light in a landscape and how this can be portrayed by the color of the underpainting at the Cape Cod School of Art. More recently I have studied with Ray Roberts and Matt Smith to increase my comfort with plein air painting.
    I paint in styles varying from extremely traditional oil portraits to lively figurative works and light/temperature based plein-air landscapes. The impact of the first brush strokes and/or underpainting on the final [...]
