Dogs by the Creek, Winter

9x9 pastel and watercolor on Uart paper $100.
The rain stopped for now and the creek is filled to the brim; no rocks are showing. Today I stayed close to home and painted at Rock Creek. While I stood there painting I watched a buck and doe swim across the creek. I must have been very still because they didn't seem to notice me and swam right towards me. What an amazing treat! Later two dogs came and stood on the opposite beach. The golden retriever presented and step of color (orangey tan) that joins both pieces of land. Oh the joy of being outside with nature!
