Creek near the house

There is a spot I drive by almost everyday coming home from work. It's one of those roads that, in it's day, was the major route of transportation. These days it has been replaced by a four lane divided highway that runs parallel to it. But I prefer to take the old road. It takes you down to a very old bridge that is only wide enough for one car. My neighbors and I wave each other across when we approach it.

Under this bridge is a beautiful little creek. I having been driving by it for the last seven years. As you can see (if I have done my job right) it is a wonderful little place. I wanted to capture it to share with all of you.

I learned a lot about landscape painting from doing this painting. It was like painting a room with four walls. I was trying to capture the three dimensional space within it.

More to come!

Gosh, this is lovely. You're really made a little world with this painting, Chuck. I feel as if I were RIGHT there.

Chuck Rose said...

Thanks. That's exactly what I was shooting for. Right next to a very busy highway was this little room of light that not very many people see. Which is a shame, because it's beautiful.

Chuck, this is peaceful and so beautifully rendered!

Linda said...

Perfect! And it does encirle you, just like a wonderful room!

Well hello stranger!
This painting is just lovely... the effect you've captured with the sunlight thru the trees is wonderful!!

The sunlight on the water is magical. I love the way you've focused on an intimate area, rather than painting a broader view. It looks like a private, secret place in your painting. How large is this painting please?

This is amazing! The shades and color combinations are so amazing; I thought it’s a part of haven where I can spend the rest of my life. It’s awesome, I admit you are my inspiration for coming back to art and painting.
