5 x 7 original pastel matted to fit an 8 x 10 frame
Playing in a creek bed could amuse my sister and brother and I for hours...even WeekiWachi didn't hold a candle! We'd build a dam, cool a watermelon, walk up the stream and freeze our tootsies.
Even today I can sit by a mountain stream for endless hours daydreaming, reading or collecting a pocketful of stones. Truely de-stressing.
Next best thing is meditating on a painting done from this small portion of the Watauga River in western N.C. The sun, just beginning to peek through the trees, reminds me that
every morning is a new one, a new opportunity, a clean slate.
Watauga (Wata gi) is a Cherokee Indian word meaning, loosely, beautiful waters, whispering waters, or village of many springs. I like that.
