I took a photo of the scene I painted a few years ago. I haven't worked from a photo since I was in high school. This creek goes out into the Chesapeake Bay. It is very serene and seems very spiritual in its peaceful environment. When the tide changes the beach changes and therefore sometimes the water from the creek won't go out into the bay and sometimes it will. Our cottage on the Chesapeake was recently sold so I don't know if I will ever get the chance to go to this place again. I look to the Bible to get through this great loss.
"Set your minds on things above not on earthly things." Colossians 3:2.
Cropping this picture I was unable to get the whole sky in and may update with a better photograph once a get a filter for my camera.
