Brown Bear Creek

Just down the road from where I have spent my last three summers, Brown Bear Creek is a beautiful spot that is easily inspiring. Coho run up this stream and finish their journey in that inky black pool at the bottom of the falls. The light pours into this cavernous place on summer’s afternoons, bringing superb light and wonderful greens and yellows from the moss and leaves.

Spring Creek

I start with one of my simplest pieces that brings me the simplest of joys – “Spring Creek”. Some of my first memories are of this place. Capturing the calming, nostalgic effect this little creek has on me was the key to making it work.
