Reflections on the Portage

Waking early, I went down to the river bank to catch the morning light.  As I painted, a doe and her fawn walked along the opposite side of the river - never seeing me until I reached for a different brush.  Fish jumped in the river every so often, and a weasel walked along my side of the river - just below me.  He jumped in for a swim, popping up onto rocks and back in again.  It is the first time I've seen a weasel while plein air painting!  Peace fills the air in this place, and painting is the perfect repose.  Painting number 951 in 951 days.
