Day 99 Patricia Scarborough – Nebraska: Turkey Creek – Oil on board 5″ x 7″ – August 2009
– This is one of my favorite “hidden” places. It’s just off the bridge coming into town off Highway 81. Actually, it’s a backwater from the creek, full of algae and muck. When the sun hits it though. the water sparkles and gleams as though it were a clear mountain stream. –

Day 99 – Mavis Penney – Labrador: Muskrat Falls – Oil on canvas 5″ x 7″ – August 2009
– Muskrat Falls is an impressive natural 50 foot waterfall on the lower Churchill River. The hydro power potential of Muskrat Falls was
recognized more than a hundred years ago when investors proposed constructing a dam and paper mill there. It wasn’t built, but the
hydro potential of the site remains under review today in a controversial plan for electric power development. –
