Here are oil and acrylic paintings of the Potomac River.  Living in Alexandria VA, close to the River, it is one of my passions to paint. From my view the Sun rises over the river and always is a magic display, urging me to record the scene. Sometimes I am there to paint it , sometimes I can photo it and paint it later, other times I rely on memory and paint from imagination. Often these come out best. [ Dawn Bridgeworks and Potomac Dawn were examples of these].

Many of the scenes are looking out over the River from Alexandria, at Founders Park and Oronoco Park. Others are pictures of the marina at Bellehaven Park, and the surrounding marshes known as Dykes Marsh.

I have traveled the length of the Potomac ending up at the source of the North Branch. This is in West Virginia at a place called Fairfax Stone Mountain. There you will find a small state park, and a large rock with a plaque. The plaque states that this is the source of the Potomac, and from under the rock spurts a small spring of water, which streams down the valley to become the North Branch. Later it is joined by the South Branch which flows North parallel to the Shenandoah River, which itself joins the Potomac at Harpers Ferry. Look at Potomac Source at the bottom of this page.
