How a Bad Portrait of Jane Morphs into a River Landscape

I went into the dunes to pastel yesterday morning and returned home to oil paint on my deck. What glorious fall weather! Always looking to conserve, I used a painting from last winter that I had hoped would be Jane's senior portrait but that looked less and less like her as I painted. It turned out to be a very useful underpainting for "Autumn on the River."
