Clinging to the Creek Bank

Clinging the the Creek Bank
Oil on panel, 14x11


This peaceful creek runs between the house and the barns on the Deppe Farm in Washington.  I had to climb down the bank, and set up on a rocky plateau that was pretty wet under foot.  Protected from the strong wind, it was actually hot and humid down in my “painting hole”!  A wonderful place to explore, the frogs kept me company as I worked.  One even entertained me by laying back on the water, kicking his leg, as he looked sideways at me!  He was large - and so were his many friends!  The color of this water was a bit of a challenge, as it changes from browns to golds.  It has been a while since I’ve painted a creek - and I was so glad to get this in!
