A Waterfall Somewhere in Yellowstone.
A Waterfall Somewhere In Yellowstone.
8x6in oil on canvas panel $125.
Wish I knew where this was in the park.
Unlike the other paintings, there were no markers for this spot.
I was there at this time of year and the snow was still melting
in some shady spots. I remember the roar of this waterfall
and lots of foamy bubbles at the base.
It is hard to show the scale on something like this without plopping a
person on the rocks, but these fell about 10 feet.
Interesting thing about about scale. Without a comparison it can be hard for the
viewer to gauge the exact size of many things and artists can play with this to their advantage.
Tomorrow I am going for a spot of color with the Grand Prismatic Pool,
my hands down, favorite place in the park. It will have to be an abstract.
