Creek Bend Landscape Colorful Painting Daily Art by K. Joann Russell

Creek Bend, colorful small oil painting by K. Joann Russell
"Creek Bend"
5 x 7" oil painting

Even though it has been awhile since I've posted on this blog, I did complete my series of small paintings on gessoed mat board. This colorful oil painting marks the last of the series.

Creek Bend", a small colorful original landscape oil painting, shows an impressionistic view of a mountain stream changing direction as it flows through evergreen trees into touches of spring light on bushes. This is typical of fresh water streams in southern Oregon where boulders force the current to change direction creating rapids and more still waters in pools. 

The contrast of cool greens and blues with warm golds and browns gives a freshness to go with the cold waters of mountain runoff. This creek is typical of the many in the mountains of southern Oregon.  

 Lots of surface texture on this small daily painting makes the scene seem so real.  You might find a trout resting resting from the rapids in the calmer waters of the shady pool. This painting can be your special memory piece of your favorite fishing hole.

"Creek Bend", an oil painting on archivally prepared mat board, is varnished and ready to place in a standard size frame. It is 5 x 7".
