More Waterfalls and Why Waterfalls

This series started on my visit to Iceland in December. I was taken by the stark yet rich landscape of winter. I wanted nothing
 more than to transport to my studio and paint what I felt. 
I have painted more prolifically since the trip than I 
have in years. As you can see, I have fixated
 on waterfalls. There are feelings one experiences 
when near a falls. Scientists explain it as a direct reaction
 to the ozone created by the falling water. I hesitate to become too philosophical, but I think there is an almost spiritual uplifting of the soul that takes place. The movement, the power, the drama, and the clean mist all enhance and expand the moments. That is what started this series. I hope you enjoy them.

Two New Waterfalls

I have decided to keep doing the falls till I run out of ideas. The next ones will have a bit more color.

Small Paintings or "Where I Put My Paint When I Mix Too Much"



Finished One, Starting Another

Iceland had such an impact on me and my work that I need to back up a little and return to brighter colors. These two are the last (as far as I know) in the Iceland Series.
