While driving along a backwoods road in Cowlitz County, visiting my sister in Washington State, I came upon “Mill Creek“. The way the sun was shining through the evergreen trees onto the cool, clear water rushing over the rocks, I was compelled to capture that beauty on canvas. There is something so purifying to my soul when I am able to see nature at its most untouched. The water was clear and I could see fish lazily swimming by, where it had been warmed by the sun. Shafts of sunlight changed the color of the trees to a bright golden green. Hmmm, so beautiful. . . .
