WATER, WATER, EVERYWHERE
"Estes Runoff" oil
You can tell its hot here in Texas by
the things I choose to paint. Water, snow
or anything that will get my mind off how
hot it is outside.
On my last trip to Estes Park
my good friend, Bruce Peil, and I hiked up
to Loche Vale. On the way were a series of
runoffs with waterfalls. Not as dramatic as
I made this one to be, but waterfalls just the same.
I could sit on the rocks and just listen to the
sound of the rushing water all day. It is
such a cerebral experience compared to the rest
of the time I spend painting in Texas.
