Mountain Waters Revisited

York Study      8" x 10"    Oil on Board
The Georgia mountain streams played a large role in my making these hills my home.  Nothing soothes my soul more than soaking in the sounds and smells of a mountain stream whether a tiny trickle or a roaring river and here we have multitudes of both.  The irony of our mountain waters is in the neutrality to human welfare:  they can be the source of life or death, of health or injury, destruction or creation.

Sometimes how they effect our lives depends upon how we approach these waters; at other times, the forces of nature make their own determination.  

Once again this powerful metaphor has caught my attention and is becoming the theme for another spate of paintings.  This small study is the first in this series.

Enjoy this day.
