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.
