Being an art teacher I am always looking for a new idea for an artwork and usually come back with something my students and I can use. Often a couple of my students have tried their hand at one of my photos and I never give it a second thought after that.
For the fourth of July a couple of years back we took a day trip to the Guadalupe River at a privately owned camp. It is not unusual for people to float the river and rentals are usually available on the river.
Canoes, rafts, kayaks, tubes....whatever you can think of you could probably find it for rent somewhere.
I was more interested in the patterns of shapes and colors created by the canoes in storage around the side of the camp store than actually renting anything.
Next time, I think I will take my paints with me and paint at the river.
River Rental is a watercolor about 9" x 12".
