This is a spectacular watercolor of a couple strolling next to the Winooski River in Montpelier, Vermont. Alicia was very skilled at painting winter scenes with trees loaded with snow, reflections from the ice covered inlet, and beautifully painted old fashioned lanterns lining the walkway. The beautiful Winooski River has a great history. Paleoindians hunted and lived in the watershed 10,000 years ago. The land back then was much like the Arctic tundra. Hunters tracked caribou, wooly mammoths and mastodons. Around 1400AD, Abenaki Indians cleared trees along the Winooski River near Burlington. There is archeological evidence showing that maize (corn) was being planted at that time. The Abenakis named the river for the wild onions growing along its banks.
