Creekside, 9 x 12 in.

A small study of this scene is an early part of my tree studies that I've been working on since late July. I was able to play up the transitions of blue water to yellow-orange fields to purple hills in this version. The lazy, gentle quality of this group of trees by the creek caught my eye right away this summer, and a successful study ensured a fun couple of hours working it up as a larger painting.

Julie, I've been meaning to write and tell you how much I've been enjoying your tree studies. You are pro. Gorgeous shapes and wonderful colours! Beautifully seen.

I'm really enjoying following your tree studies . . . very impressed by your ability to take ordinary scenes (non-dramatic ones) and infuse them with so much presence and character.
