Creek Studies

Tangerine Falls– 6×8″ oil on panel

The fountains are flowing in our creeks. These paintings are both from areas hit hard by fire and storms the last few years. It has been fascinating watching how the water recarves new pools for swimming and how a couple of tumbled boulders can offer a stream a new sandstone diving board for a waterfall. We’ve got the two moods of spring represented here. Mysterious moody mist and bright sunny clarity.

The last painting was a cloud study I made a couple of weeks ago…
