Peculiar, Isn’t It?

Lately I have become fascinated with the play of water upon rocks. It strikes me as peculiar that water has such a powerful force over these solid masses. Water Escape is second in a series of waterscapes. Done in soft pastel, I painted this from a scene along Salmon Creek in the Gold Lakes Basin area of the Sierra Nevada. What seems like an ever running stream, Salmon Creek demonstrates how powerful water can be. Its force coupled with the its roar is exhilarating!
