This painting is from some old photos I took in Vietnam. While checking through some photos online, I found one similar and it reminded me of one I had. I combined them and added the currents in the river. The photo online had a parking lot in the foreground. It used its composition and the atmosphere of the Vietnam photos. I have always loved the mists in the mountains. For a while I visited in the Smokey Mountains and attended a Native American celebration there where I played with an awesome flute player, Ward Stroud.
