A figure rowing in the foreground highlights the reflection of a quiet day by the water.

Lovely soft greens, pale yellows and beige are prevalent in this delightful, pleasing watercolor. A large building and smaller dock houses line the shore and several homes are peeking out behind trees. A figure rowing in the foreground highlights the reflection of a quiet day by the water. Smoke stacks and steeples dot the skyline. 

Beautifully matted with contrasting colors highlight this watercolor. The signature and date in the lower right corner are soft to compliment this work. 

The frame is 3" deep and very ornate gold leaf. It adds great dimension to this piece.
