The elephant ears that grow along the bank of the San Marcos River create a very tropical feel.  The reflections in the shadowed water add to it the sense that one is in  Monet’s Garden at Givenchy.  This 22X30 full sheet painting took 2 sessions at the river for me to preserve the subtle morning light.
