“Up the Creek,” oil, 36×24

I love this painting.  It gives the feeling that you are standing right in the middle of this beautiful place.  The light on the water makes it seem as if the water is actually flowing UP!  hee hee.  Greens, blues, rich mauves all give this painting a realistic feeling of the cool mountain creeks.

    Beautiful, Michel! The surface of the water is amazing, revealing rock beneath, reflecting a world above, and shimmering with movement. See you soon!
