|A Quiet Place by Joyce Brandstetter Couch|
Here in Texas, there are little hidden streams on every country road. Dry streams most of the year, but after a rain they come alive. Small and overgrown they are hidden from view by all except for the most curious passerby. I found this one in San Saba County, Texas. The bright sun seemed to cast a golden sheen on the rocks and water and a small patch of blue reflected from the sky. A Quiet Place is a 16x20 acrylic painting.
