Crane Dancing and Creek Riding

About three weeks ago I was working on a Sandhill Crane painting but I got burned out on it and did the loon painting instead. Since them I went back to the crane painting and just finished it a few minutes ago.
It is titled, 'Crane Dance' although only one crane is actually dancing.
There is not a lot of detail on this painting.
It is more about creating mood and atmosphere which makes room for the viewer's imagination to fill in the details.
The complete painting. It is 16x20".
Scott just sent me some photos of his, Jean's, and her friend's latest bike ride along Campbell Creek. Scott said that it was a bit treacherous but he managed to avoid falling. Jean and her friend were not so fortunate. No one got hurt.
This is fun for masochistic, (I mean adventurous) people.
The surface is both very slippery and uneven; not to mention full of pitfalls.
If your tire goes into that, you are going to plant your face into the unforgiving ice.
Some interesting ice sculptures.
