"Clear Creek Reflections"


9"x12" Oil on Gallery-Wrapped Canvas
charit
able Donation *Sold for $465. proceeds to benefit Charleston's Youth*
Although my father lives in a "suburban" area, he is also surrounded by farmland and untouchable green space. This painting reminds me of a scene I often see when I visit him.
His property is located on a bluff which overlooks a Nature Preserve. Beyond his backyard down the short, steep bank below, is a beautiful creek.
In Summertime, you cannot see the Creek through the thick, lush foliage of trees, but you can hear the soft rushing sound of it traveling over fallen branches and rocks. In Autumn, the creek often is dry but the falling orange, red and yellow leaves allows a peak below.
Winter holds promise of a snowey sight. Spring is lush with new color and plenty of water rushing by. I should do a "Four Season" theme with this!
