"Dance of Trees and Water" 6x8, Oil on Canvas by Dawn Waters Baker

"Dance of Trees and Water" 6x8, Oil on Canvas

I had started this little piece back when my family and I took an overnight hike into some woods. My girls were captivated by the little creek that broke our walk (at just the right time) and I took advantage of the time to paint. When I got back to Dallas I got busy with other work but came back to this piece yesterday as I was out looking at some lovely back lit trees. I ended out using two places to make one image.
I call it the "Dance of Trees and Water" as the water was making that beautiful moving sound over rocks while the trees seemed to bend and sway in the afternoon air. 
Only thing missing was my Dad. Will try to get him out there next time.
