Cave Creek Clouds

Clouds over Cave Creek, Arizona in winter, a week after heavy rains had caused the creek to rise as much as twelve feet above normal. Trees, cactus, grass and rocks were torn up and washed downstream, leaving rafts of shredded debris to be caught up in the sturdy branches of cottonwood trees ten feet off the ground - tinder for future fire. This scene is along the trails of Jewel of the Creek, part of the Desert Foothills Land Trust, just south of Spur Cross Ranch Conservation Area. - Nancy Boudreau

This painting is about 5" x 7" acrylic on gessoed mat board, protected in a cream-colored mat. As with all these little studies, the text above is handwritten on the back of the painting, which is also signed and dated.
