[photo] Evening on Slate Creek, California [2]
Photo credit: DeRu's Fine Arts, Laguna Beach
Size: 20 x 15 in (51 x 38 cm)
Inscription: l/l "FSchafer", initials conjoined in a monogram
Verso: said to be "Ev. on Slate Creek Cala"
Provenance: With DeRu's Fine Arts, Bellflower, California, 1999. With Christopher Queen Galleries, Duncans Mills, California, 2001.
Description: A view up a tree-lined, quiet creek with a very tall conifer standing above the forest on the left bank. In the foreground a grassy bank slopes down to a sandy river edge strewn with brown and gray rocks; an upright stick is mired at the water's edge. The right, more distant, bank of the river has a similar forest; a downed snag lies pointing toward the river while a second snag still stands but is leaning precipitously toward the river. The lower center of the painting recedes into a murky gray distance; the sky is mostly cloudy with a bit of blue near the top, shading to a bright orange sunset near the horizon. (From a color photograph.)
Note: May be intended to be a pendant with On Russian River, California [1].
