Church Sale Find - Large Oil Painting

and now... drum roll please

The Large Oil Painting (found at that wonderful Church Sale). I love the details in this painting. I have no idea where I will find wall space to hang it.

The islands with their leaning trees and rocky edges
The lone person poling his boat
and .....
The large painting was hanging from this easel when I saw it so I just had to buy the easel as well. I put the frame back on the smaller duck hunter oil painting. Having the two pictures together makes their relative sizes obvious. Tomorrow close ups of the artists easel.
