Wallowa River

A section of the upstream Wallowa River, near our house, actually a short walk away; but I was lazy and rode the ATV down the hill.  This is another scene that I have wanted to paint in the snowy winter.  Study 10x8", Oil on Linen.  If I were to repaint this scene, I would probably re-compose it to be something more like the image below:

It's really interesting to see how you would choose to crop it. Although I really enjoy the color relationship of the warm riverbed against the cool reflections of the sky, I can see how the top area where the trees meets the sky has a stronger composition. Thanks for uploading these great studies!
