Chamberlin Creek 3

Chamberlin Creek 3
Alkyd on canvas
20 x 24 in

The rushing water of Chamberlin Creek flows straight out of a glacier. I began this painting early in the day when the air was cool, but as the sun began to melt the glacier, more and more water flowed down the stream, obscuring parts of my composition. I had to paint fast and make many adjustments to keep up with the changing scene.
