Winter rains...


After a few days of heavy rain, the North Umpqua River is a muddy grey color and overflowing its banks. But the hills across the river are beginning to change from summer brown to spring green, a beautiful and hopeful sight.

This is a beautiful piece. I can feel the rain in this piece.

This has such a wonderful mood to it. Makes me want to cozy up!
Happy New Year!

Oh how I miss the sound and sights of that river! I grew up in Glide and really miss the river year-round now that I'm in the PDX area. Rivers here just aren't the same....

I love this, Sharon. Your natural greens are wonderful!
