‘Sutton creek’ is the title of this painting and may actually be a little brighter than it shows on your screen.
Inspired by the creek of the same name, this water course has it origins on the south side of Cowichan Lake flowing down through and around mixed stands of Red Cedars, Firs, Hemlocks, Alders and Maples. On the way it picks up from other not named seasonal water ways, passes through the Honeymoon Wild Flower Reserve (where at the appropriate time of year has a stunning display of pink fawn lilies, trillium and other wildflowers ) until it empties into Cowichan Lake.
On the banks of this creek we have been honoured with the sittings of bears, elk, deer, ravens, eagles, owls, raccoons and one day a female Mallard duck who chose to go through her whole repertoire of washing /grooming only a few feet away from us as we sat quietly on a stony bar to paint the creek.
'Sutton Creek’ measures 36 x 48 inches and is original art, oil over acrylic. and is available for purchase at $525.
