It was a shimmering sunlit morning here today, with a chill in the clear air. We drove to the park at the eastern edge of Salmon Creek. Brenda walked the trail a couple of miles or so back home, while Winslow and I nosed around the wooded creek bottom. We discovered this fabulous tree, with that limb reaching out like a long, grasping arm.

I really enjoyed doing this painting. Lately I've been feeling the need to work a little larger. There's a certain kind of paint quality and freedom of brushwork that can be difficult to achieve on a very small scale.
