Roaring Brook - Downstream, (14x18) (click on image to zoom)
These were done just down the street from my house sometime in January. The road which crosses Roaring Brook floods out several times a year. I used to drive through the rushing water, not realizing just how strong the current can be -- or weather the road below was still in tact. Now I take the slightly longer route rather than risk having to process a really stupid insurance claim.
It's a truly beautiful place. If only I could incorporate into my paintings a soundtrack of the tranquility of the water chattering through the peaceful woods.
