Winter Creek

TM9621 Winter Creek 7×7 oil on paper

Some places haunt us – they enter our hearts or psyches and take up residence. This creek in the mountains is such a place for me. Maybe it’s the music of the flowing water surrounded by silence, or the arrangement of open space and woods, but it excites me every time. Winter may be the best, as with the sun coming out after a gray morning. Whatever the secret is, I choose to simply enjoy it.
