Under the shade of a big tree on a hot and steamy day in the rolling hills of a Franklin, Tennessee ranch, I discovered this little stream. I found that looking at the cool waters, feeling a gentle, occasional breeze and finding shelter under a big tree made this "plein air" painting enjoyable. I must admit that there were times that I wanted to join the cows as they waded in this stream. It was a beautiful setting and a great painting day!
