Fishing Salmon Creek Rapids Oakridge Oregon Original Oil Painting Framed Sherri McDowell Artist Oregon by heART


The fisherman stands in shallow water, dramatic lighting shows him nearly a speck against the background of huge trees, and the rushing stream. I was walking along the trail just above Salmon Creek on a gorgeous September evening and there he was, casting his line, the rod and line lost in the backdrop, his gesture highlighted. He is so tiny compared to the background, but that is a comforting thing to consider how we are all a part of the whole.

Salmon Creek originates in the mountains to the east and south of Oakridge, and flows through our town just a couple of blocks from my little house. There is a trail on both sides of the river, on top of a levee built to mitigate the floods that used to be a regular occurrence. Walking that trail is part of the rhythm of my life, and the lives of many of our community members. It is such a privilege to live in this beautiful place, where the peaceful moments like this fill the heart and soul!

The painting is offered with a wood frame, you can choose which color frame by selecting the appropriate variation photo. It ships free of charge to United States locations.
