A Painting Day - Silent Creek - Ruth Andre

The seasonal creek that runs through our property is no longer flowing. It is a sad time to see the creek bed with water captured by the rocks and blocked from continuing downstream. The sun is stealing the last bits of moisture day by day. The creek represents a life being born in the fall of the year and then passing on in early summer. The creek's short life is a reminder to me to live each day.  It is a somber time as I watch the creek disappear into the sandy creek bed.
