Brush Creek Slough

Though I suspect they dry up in summer, in Spring the creek is paralleled by small streams and sloughs. They wander through the pastures and are usually dense with plant life. I was sitting along one painting when I had my encounter with the moose. Apparently it was her home.
Another new discovery is Joan Eardley, a Scottish painter whose seascapes, painted on location, are especially moving to me. She died at 42 of breast cancer. This is infuriating.

Cancer has robbed us of so many extraordinary talents.

I wasn't familiar with Eardley. Went in search and found a good YouTube video about her. Catterline. where she painted, must be an amazing place to visit; the view of the sea seems endless. It clearly inspired her wonderful canvases.

Lovely, cool and deep painting; and thanks for introducing us to a fine painter who died too soon. In her Harvest painting, I can see hints of your colors and brushstrokes :) I'll definitely search for more paintings by her.
