Mississippi River Reflections | plein air painting on the St. Paul shore

This painting was done on a beautiful, still  morning along the St. Paul side of the Mississippi River.  I didn’t know it when I set up, but it turns out that there is an off-leash dog park on the other side of the river.  I was serenaded all morning long by dogs barking and their owners yelling after them.  As a huge dog lover, I thought it was great.  I suppose I could see how a non-dog-person may not have found it so wonderful.
