Nixon's 16x20 A Sunny Day on the Rapidan is the beginning of a series of Luminous Rural landdcape paintings. A special medium, Iridescent is added to specific areas to enhance the intensity or brightness. It is a bright exciting painting on stretched canvas. It caught the eye of several patrons and was sold instantly! This scene depicts my impression of the Rapidan River as a youth, where I would fish, swim, and daydream. I was fascinated by the surging waters and sandy banks of the Rapidan River. The bright colors symbolizes the joy, peace, and tranquility that I experienced then, and a belief in a future paradise on earth; a new world!
