Three Boys, One Creek

I don’t think children get to do this kind of thing enough; play in creeks, explore the woods, poke things with sticks….

When I was about 12 several of the neighborhood kids decided to build a bridge across Dixon Branch. When that turned out to be a lot harder than we imagined we decided a short pier would do just fine. We worked for hours trying to nail scrap lumber together to make our pier. Then it rained. Not a trace of our pier was left, ending up somewhere in White Rock Lake.

I hadn’t had a chance to create any art work in awhile and was desperate to do something. I decided a quick sketch might hold me over until I could take up something more serious. I came up with this color pencil sketch. I wanted it to be very simple yet colorful. But not too colorful. I wanted softness.
