Shining Bend, 2010
oil on canvas board, 20" x 16"
The creek in the Kalamazoo Nature Center is a place I keep returning to for inspiration. It winds its way down to the Kalamazoo River through the hillsides. I have painted so many views of this creek but it never fails to interest me. Every angle, every time of year and time of day is different. The water, reflections, and light on the hills around it continue to catch my attention. I will keep painting this creek until it stops pulling me back to it.
