In Times of Drought

In Times of Drought by Lewis Williams, OFS

Artwork Narrative:

Escalante Creek travels down off the Uncompahgre Plateau in Western, Colorado struggling to continue its flow even during the worst of droughts. In late summer, searching for the spot that ‘needed painting,’ I came across this view of the largest fall and pool on the creek.

Situated to paint along the edge of the high rim, a wrong move sent a large portion of my painting box over the side into the depths. One must plod on with one’s work.  When I finished, I initiated a not very hopeful search. The painting gods, however, smiled on me. Floating in an eddy, I located my stuff, and it was salvageable.
