Crossing the River

The song that this painting was based on really touched me and I thought about what kind of painting I wanted to do as an extension.  The song to me is a gospel song .... and I remembered this photo I took that "accidentally" had a halo in it.   I worked and re-worked the painting and finally got it where it felt right.  It has been a real labor of love.

To hear and see play the video below.  (The music is The Highwaymen ie Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, Kris Kristofferson and Waylon Jennings)


  1. Carrie, I love watching you paint--that's an art in itself!!

  2. There is something so peaceful about this. Very different. Love the title.

  3. My dear cousin-in-law is this piece for sale???? For so many reasons I would love to own this piece!!!!
