Dramatic Lighting at Catherine Creek
This is painted from a photograph taken at Catherine Creek early on a summer morning. I have attempted painting here on several occasions and each time my efforts have been foiled by ants. There are a very large number of ants that live here and stopping even for a moment can cause an ant swarm. Then I forget all about the ants and tried again and was again swarmed by ants. These are those big red ones. Part of the outdoor experience that hikers and bikers, or people moving through nature get to miss and only painters who stop for long periods of time get to experience!
