Description: This piece is the second in a series of works I painted exploring how the speed that water flows affects its transparency. I did this by painting the water as it appeared at three different places along the series of falls that make up Pennsylvania’s Ricketts Glen State Park. It’s a beautiful park with over 24 named falls -- so I had lots of subjects to choose from for this series. It’s beautiful all year round, but painting the series in autumn allowed me to choose a wonderful, warm pallet of colors for these paintings. The Falls captures the water flowing at its highest volume. Note how the roiling water of the falls almost totally obscures what is behind it. I chose to extend the fall vegetation on the right of the picture to draw the viewer’s eyes back and up into the work towards the painting’s subject: the water.
