This is the first time I have ever painted a waterfall.  It was such a great early fall day when we were on the rocks over looking the upper falls on the Temperance River, near Lake Superior.  One of the most fascinating things about paint this piece, was attempting to capture the feeling of light streaming in between the tree and rocks.  With so much of the river and rocks covered in cool blue shadows, the warm sun light really stood out on the foaming water as it flowed  over the rocks, heading down stream.

Gorgeous representation of the wonder of being at the Temperance River! Great handling of the difference between the blue shadows and the sunlit greens!
