Creek Solace

I love the peaceful quiet near the winding creek on a day like this.  Not too many people come to this trail when rain is threatening, so I sketch with only the wildlife to accompany me.  Frogs and a pair of coots  chatter on the water, adding to this day's experience.  I love the total immersion I get from plein air work.  It is like escaping from the world for a little while, to return rejuvenated.  Painting number 2631 in 2631 days.


  1. Love your pen and ink work. Love how with few lines you create his lovely scene in front of you.

  2. I’m still in awe of your tiny works, so small. I haven’t done plain air work, perhaps I should try. I experience the total immersion you mention in my studio, to the point of forgetting to eat meals(!) so I know I could easily be carried away and get lost in time.
