Minnihaha Falls


This morning my underpainting was dry so I

went into it with color. This is another way to

approach the 'canvas'. It sure helped to control

the values!

Thank you Celeste, Jan, Jesus! This is a place
I know and enjoy. There was a mist from the falls it was flowing so much!

Une peinture fraîche, remplie de vie et de mouvement, celui de l'eau qui m'interpelle toujours. Très joli travail...
Merci à vous pour vos gentils commentaires...
Je vous fais de grosses bises.

Heather! It's 8"x10" oil on gesso'd board:)

Thank you Martine! This has always been a favorite spot to enjoy. When I close my eyes and listen, it is natures music, and I'm a soothed savage beast!
