Lean to the Light
14X18, Oil on Canvas
The logging industry used to be the king in Searcy County and Grinders Ferry was a place where logs were rolled into the river to transport downstream. I believe most of the time they were pulled out at the town now called Gilbert to be loaded onto the train.
The photo references for this piece came from February of this year. Early rains often swell the river and turn it a beautiful blue green color from suspended rock solids. I leaned the tops of some of the trees to the left, where the light was coming from, and that's the source of the name of this one.
Tomorrow I'll try to start up a second blog to show all my work that is not related to Arkansas.
