Late in the Winter Woods

Late in the Winter Woods
Oil on panel, 10x8
Back in the woods is a winding creek, very shallow, and sometimes it even runs dry.  My grandma always called this the "wash".  They used to dump all kinds of things in various locations of it, trying to stop the erosion of the banks.  She told me of brass beds, old furniture, discarded farm items of all sorts - all hidden somewhere along it's expanse.  We used to go "hunting for treasure" back there, and once in a while, I'd bring something back to the house.  I would tell my children about it, and we would go exploring when they were very young.  So many good memories.  Painting number 403 in 403 days, and yes, I'm still snowed in :)
