I liked the idea of this painting when I was setting it up, but I'm not sure I did it justice. The photograph that gave me
the idea for the painting is by John K. Mitchell. He took it in Ireland
where they have lots of moisture and lots of water. In New Mexico we take water
any way we can get it even if it is just in pictures. I changed the terrain and
trees to fit in New Mexico but I think you would have to hike a long way into
the mountains to find this much water in a stream.
