Coyote Creek landscape painting by Polly Jones

Coyote Creek by Polly Jones
Late in the summer we went camping in New Mexico for a few days.  I mean primitive camping... in a tent without electricity or running water!  One day, tired of fishing, I did this little 8" by 8" acrylic painting of the creek we camped near.  It was a challenge to try to capture the shimmer reflecting off of everything, especially the water.  The mountain air is thinner and the light seems different up there.
