The Secret Byway

2013 Patron Purchase Award ~ Watercolor USA Exhibit @ Springfield, MO Art Museum

~ I was captivated by this winding, shallow creek in the Flint Hills and imagined it being used by all sorts of wildlife as their "secret" way to travel unnoticed from one area to another. I tried to use many of the colors I noticed in the water surrounding Monet's water lilies (on view at the Nelson-Atkins Art Museum in KC) and enjoyed the many months it took to get this scene exactly the way I envisioned. This is Coyne Creek at the Flying W Ranch in Cottonwood Falls in the beautiful Flint Hills in KS.
