9×12 oil on canvas
North of Blossburg, on the old 15, I spotted this nice view of the Tioga River.
This river is so intriguing to me. I love it’s orange color but this color is a result of pollution from coal mining. Maybe I shouldn’t like it and maybe I really shouldn’t have made this painting because it’s almost a celebration of coal mine pollution. On the other hand, I like to focus on the positive and that orange color definitely makes this river more interesting. I probably wouldn’t have painted it otherwise.
