Shadows on the Bar

Gregory Creek 9
12" x 16", Oil on Canvas

First time back to Gregory Creek in a long time (01/2012). This is a view of afternoon shadows cast across the ever changing gravel bar. Sand and gravel rutted by the people who visit the favorite fishing hole. Late Fall has turned the sumac to a red blaze on the hill behind the undercut bank. Layers of glacial till stratify the cut, lending texture and color that's reflected in the stream. The pioneering sycamores hold on to their last leaves of the season.
