Cedar Creek, Petit Jean Mountain, Conway County

Spring Flush, Cedar Creek
10X14, Oil on Canvas
Available at Cantrell Gallery
Earlier this year (April I think it was) we took a trip over to Petit Jean and hiked the Cedar Falls trail. It's a pretty strenuous hike and we were afraid the youngest would have some trouble with it. But other than a few scratches from jumping off of boulders and logs, he made it the whole way down and back! Not bad for a little rug rat. The falls were amazing that day and I'll be doing a painting of them later!
I loved the way the cliffs over hung the creek and went with this odd size of canvas to have more vertical feel. Up on the hillsides, the tree buds were beginning to burst open but down along the creek bank the foliage was lagging behind.
