Piney Point, Lake Dardanelle

I'm back from New York and ready to get to work, starting with this blog!
As far as I know, this piney point has no name, so I'm giving it one for free.
The painting is from our trip to Arkansas. Our vantage point was the headquarters of Dardanelle State Park; this is my morning painting. I was with 3 of my favorite people, 2 of whom painted nearly identical paintings from slightly different perspectives, and we weren't even cheating! The captivating thing for me was the way the early sun was lighting the sides of the trees on the point and the fall colors on the distant shore, while the actual point still rested in the shadows.
