Libby Creek

"Libby Creek"
6 x 8 inches
Acrylic on Watercolor Paper


This little painting is from a recent lesson I taught. It reminded me of Libby Creek in Montana. The water gets low in the fall, but during the summer, when I was 12 years old, my friends and I would float the creek on inner tubes, except the real shallow areas, then we had to get out and walk a ways or try to bounce along on the rocks! We would cry out "Bottoms up!!!"

The part I liked best was coming around a fast bend into deeper water. We tried bumping into each other because sometimes you could knock a person off of their tube! The water is ice cold, so it was funny to see them scramble in a hurry to get back on their tube. All of us had our share of getting dunked!

Thanks for looking!
