This 5 x 7 inch oil painting is of Flett Creek which flows through a pasture just north of the neighborhood in which I grew up. When I was very young, my brother and I used to go swimming in this creek, but when our parents found out, we were banished. They perceived danger--drowning was a distinct possibility in their minds. They just didn't understand the delight of dipping in a cool creek on a hot afternoon--it was absolutely wonderful!
