daily painting | pioneer creek

Watercolor sketch of Pioneer Creek, WI. Missing it. Maggie the muskrat swimming across the creek, looking to say hello. Fish fighting amongst themselves for Diane’s nightcrawlers, broadwing hawks overhead, layered lily pad leaves nudging the reedy bank. The peace of that place! Breeze rocked the pontoon boat where I sat, painting. Chilly there, now. Autumn has arrived. We never did figure out what made the very loud splashing noises now and then. Sounded like a dog dropping into the water from a tree limb. Never saw it. Really big fish jumping? That place was full of beautiful mysteries.
