Monochrome Soft Pastel, 22 x 30 inches
This pastel painting is of a creek that I have visited many times. This particular meandering part of the creek is one of my favourite sections as it offers many creative possibilities with the change in seasons and water levels. The creek is at the bottom of a ravine and traverses areas of uneven terrain. During periods of increased water flow, the force of the water can erode and wash away bends in the shoreline…trees and all. For more information, click here.
“No way has been devised for measuring the value of a work of art. History proves that juries in art have been generally wrong. With few exceptions the greatest artists have been repudiated by the art juries in all countries and at all times.” – Robert Henri (1865-1929)
