Salmon Creek Evening

Painted on Salmon Creek in a Hilton town park. The trees were back-lit, making them glow yellow and chartreuse. Done around dusk, the light changed rapidly making it tough to not "chase the light".

size 9"x12", framed size is 15"x18"
Paintings come matted and framed under glass, ready for hanging.

Hi Colette,
I've enjoyed looking at all of your new work! I think this painting is my favorite one(but I like them all). The glow around the tree branches, with the dark reflection - very effective. I think it's the sparkle in the water that REALLY sets it all off. Our conversation the other day inspired me to throw some reds and more blues into the greens yesterday. It was fun!! -Stacey
