The Story

Do you ever stop just to look at how amazing something is? On an evening walk with a friend, we came to this creek before going to dinner, and I had to stop. It was so beautiful with the way the light hit the grass and how the clouds looked in the sky and their reflections in the water. I took a few quick photos, knowing I’d want to paint this scene. I love the painting more than the photos!

The Inspiration

“Rosell Park Creek” is an original 11x14” acrylic painting on canvas of a little place near the beginning of a path at a local park. This creek is easily overlooked, and I see most people walk by without really noticing it. I wanted to show it to you, though, because it is a place of beauty.

I see this painting and instantly am transported back to that evening of great conversation and pleasant weather, and I feel grateful for the good memory of that place. When you can’t always be where you want to go, a painting can take you right there, and sometimes it isn’t an exotic location, but just an everyday spot that happens to have wonderful bits of beauty.
