Shadows Along Shoal Creek

This is a place I would like to be during these hot,humid days of summer, although today one can actually breathe outside...not too stifling. The shadows, golden colors, and coolness of the creek are just so inviting! Shoal Creek is by the town where my mom grew up, or at least part of her early years. When she was a little girl and inquired of her 'origins' her father would tell her that they found her under a rock on Shoal Creek.....couldn't fool her though.

It is intesting how just about anyone can relate to scenes like this. They are so common and typify special places that we all know....actual physical places that we all know but also somehow an emotional place that we all know. I like that connectedness that people have.

This is a 5" x 7" oil on canvas and it is available to a good home. It is $75- unframed. Shipping costs are seperate.
You can email me at if you are interested. I will be glad to bill you by Paypal if you like.
