Using Shadows as Frames

In "Oysterman's Rest", I decided to use shadows in the foreground to help frame the oyster boat.  The shadows are also reflected in the water, which extends the frame, providing a dark shape to look over.

The scene is of Indian Creek, which borders the property here at Sportsmans Lodge.  I wouldn't even have to leave the Lodge grounds and still have plenty of subject matter to paint!
