Stream in Autumn

What's just around the bend in the stream?

Maybe that's why I'm drawn to paintings of streams, rivers, roads, paths, and trails.   I think that the real story is just out of sight.

This painting draws me in both through its subject and through its texture.  I like to touch this one - run my fingertips across it.  I used more paint than I usually do, and I like the actual feel of the rocks, the water, and the trees.  I even like the swirls in the brush strokes of the sky.

The season of autumn also has wonderful treats for the sense of smell.  There are aromas that we only get during this part of the year.
