Yazoo Pass Flat Bottom Boat

Originally uploaded by Tommy the Artist.
I took this photo while visiting at Moon Lake, Mississippi for my Mother-in-Law's 87th Birthday party. The day was hot and sultry so I took my sketch book and camera down to the Yazoo Pass which runs to the lake. The pass was dug during the Civil War thus has a lot of historic value. The flat bottom boat was floating low in the water beside a large tree. You can also see a cypress tree reflection in the water. I have already painted the boat in oil and watercolor. I hope to get the paintings posted soon for all to see.
