Some time ago I saw a photo of a painter who set up smack dab in the middle of a stream. Someday I'll do the same, I thought, when the opportunity presents itself. Today was the day! I went to Tideman Johnson Park (on the list of places to paint for the Johnson Creek Watershed Art Event). Verdict: painting from the center of the stream is cooool! Results: a pretty good start of a painting, but it's too late to photograph it. Instead I'll post another painting (below) that could be submitted for the Johnson Creek exhibit (it's from Reed Lake). I hope this post inspires another painter to get their feet wet too! Just make sure you are wearing shoes with rubber-y tread.
