Stevens Creek
12" x 16"
oil on canvas

Plain and simple, I am in denial about summer's demise. I can't believe it's over, I can't let go. My heart belongs to long days, sultry heat and when stepping down to a quiet little brook, you can dip your toes in the cold water - what bliss. 

Stevens Creek Park in Cupertino has just such a creek, which runs from the Santa Cruz Mountains down to San Francisco Bay, but right here it is rather shallow and slow. It's a place where on a hot day you can just take your shoes off and dip your toes in the water. Or you can set up your easel and paint. 

This painting is available through my page at The Daily Paintworks. I hope you'll visit me there.
