Creek Walk

Creek Walk

This is the creek across the street from the school. For the last month, everyday after school you will find moms sitting at the edge watching their children play in the creek. The kids have so much fun and never want to leave. Yesterday my kids went on a creek walk with the coach from their school. They find tadpoles and go through tunnels and much more, but, those are the highlights in my kids' eyes.

This painting was done in the plein air style which means to paint in the open air. Most paintings are done inside in a studio. I find that plein air paintings have a more free flow. Plus, it is 100% enjoyable to sit outside and paint with your subject right before your eyes.
