View from Roanoke River Bridge

Parkway Series #327   12 x 16   oil    Sold

At milepost  114.7 the Parkway crosses the Roanoke River.  Because of the steep slopes down to the river, the shadows are usually very dramatic at any time of the day.  The photo for this painting was taken last Saturday at 8 a.m. so the light is much more diffused.  I may try the painting again to compare the lighting effects of a different time of day.


  1. Really nice,wonderful feeling! I'm going to make it a point to visit there.

  2. Janet, is this still available? I have a 2' X 3' photo of this same general scene (Niagara Falls, looking toward Explore Park) I could pair it with. (You might want to see it; who knows?) John Hudson
