A River Runs Through It

Never saw A River Runs Through It but the title came to mind this afternoon as I painted.

Looked up the IMDb single-sentence summary of the movie:

A story about two sons of a stern minister—one reserved, one rebellious—growing up in rural Montana while devoted to fly fishing.

Yeah, something like that going on here today with this painting!

    1. Better now that the inky black has run its course and the river is clear now, yes? Fun that you noticed the bit of yellow green which I had fun tossing in. Thanks, Carol.

  2. The sound of soft flowing waters, and the taste of orange and raspberry on my tongue. Delightful!

    1. After reading your comment, Sheila, I looked back at the image and saw the water as a stream created from overflow from Irma somewhere in FL, and imagined you as a five- or six-year-old child in her yard, licking an orange-raspberry popsicle (not her first, either, since the power's off and the freezer has to be emptied!), entranced by and innocently unflustered by all the change-ups since the weekend storm.

  3. I am grabbing an inner tube and heading down that river! I want to see what's around the bend. So the question is, will you be watching the movie now?

    1. I'll be on my tube just around the bend.

      Each time I revisit this post I think about watching the movie, and maybe some day I will, but my hubby and I are not big movie watchers. Nothing against movies but when push comes to shove we usually grab a book if it's indoors weather or we want to be outdoors if weather is favorable.
