Rivers in these parts supply, incongruously, some of the best (and only) color evident in our landscape.  Fresh snow piles up on rocks rising above the water’s surface; then, as melting on the hillsides propels the rivers’ rise, the snow-mallows are engulfed, reflecting back to our wondering eyes a surreal green light:

Here are a few shots of the Chickley River, flowing down through Hawley toward Charlemont.  The first one is looking upstream:

And the second, looking down:

A bit of green to tide us over ’till Spring!

The green really is magical in these pictures. I don’t know why but it’s still the most difficult color for me to paint.. maybe something to do with a dream I remember of walking up a long grassy path and hearing the words ‘the color of heaven is green’.
