Loft Mountain Amphitheater View

Painting up on Loft Mountain amphitheater at the campgrounds, the last Friday night they were open, we camped out and I got to paint this view. The next day had a heavy cloud overcast, so I was glad to be up there to catch the colors. That is Massanutten mountain range in the way distance. We even saw a young bobcat!  16" x 40" oil on canvas, framed $800  SOLD
