Cold Creek

Cold Creek
Oil on board
14cm x 14cm or 5.5 inches x 5.5 inches

Cold!  Very very cold, especially after sitting still for a while.  Also very quiet, I saw a little egret sitting huddled on a branch, her feathers ruffling in the wind, almost looked as if she was steaming!  Water seems to flow thicker and slower in the cold.  There is a little dusting of snow but where the trees are it must be slightly protected as it is just frozen-not-snow.  The sun makes feeble attempts to put a brave face on and occasionally splashes accross the creek.  I however have a very cold bottom and am off home for my tea!
