Spring in Winter, Chatten’s Creek

It’s been a long winter but there’s hope. I like to walk at a local tract of forest near ¬†where I live. It’s my habit to stop for a moment at Chatten’s Creek as it reminds me that spring is always just beneath the surface–even this winter! It’s spring fed and never freezes over. It’s such a great metaphor at the end of a long, cold season that I just had to paint it.
