Cool Creek

"Crystal Springs Creek", oil on 12" x 16" canvas

A few weeks ago I went to paint plein air along Crystal Springs Creek.  I liked this view but just took some photos and set up in a shady spot nearby.  That plein air painting went through several transformations, ultimately unsuccessful.  So I returned to my photo of this view of the creek flowing under a small bridge, with distant plum trees and lots of cool greens.  A cool painting for a hot day here in Portland!
