A Painting Day - Vanishing Creek - Ruth Andre

Our creek, the Rancheria Creek, that flows through the valley is seasonal. The creek flows through June and then it is still and finally is swallowed by the blanket of sand. As I walked along the bridge across the creek I could still see a trickle of water flowing through the moss covered rocks and grasses but it had slowed and sounded sleepy. The painting today is my interruption of the quiet creek. It was, 
"A Painting Day".

Thank-you so much, Sue. A storm came through the valley today and whew it was wild and I painted like crazy as rain pelted the metal roof of my studio. New paintings will be posted soon.
