Bear Swamp Creek Above First Falls – Extreme Low Water, 2013
India ink and surface alteration on paper. 24″ x 18″
I did this on location a few years ago. Been thinking about that little creek a lot lately and might have to take a hike soon. It’s been even drier this summer. I’m certain things are down to a trickle up there.
I’m pleased with the way this picture turned out. There’s a quite a bit of complex and jumbled texture in there. If you look at it for a moment though, it all pops into place and you get it. Good art should require just a little engagement from viewers – they’re partners in the experience after all!
