It should come to no surprise to anyone who has read my previous posts that this is "Natirar" again. I think the Barbizon style frame suits this impressionistic scene. When I brought the painting into the gallery, Cheryl (the gallery owner) and I were trying to come up with a title for it. A patron walked in and as a joke we asked him to come up with a title for the painting. He called it "Tranquility". Works for me!

Here is another of my miniature paintings. This is a canal scene in Lambert-ville, New Jersey, a quaint town along the Delaware River bordering Pennsylvania. There are restaurants, antique shops, art galleries and gift stores to shop to your heart's content. It was an overcast, late September day where a hint of fall was already in the air. The painting has a "European feel" to it. It is often overcast in many countries in Europe which I remember from living in Germany for awhile.
