HIGHLAND CREEK

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.

  • “There are forms that can only be seen when you are near a canvas, others only appear when you are far away. To paint is to know how to put nothing on a canvas, and have it look like something when you stand back.” – Robert Henri (1865-1929)
