A Week of Waterfalls

The adventure at Cummins Falls continues as we brave an Appalachian winter to capture it in paint.

The sleet, snow, rain, rocks and heights are the least of our challenges. More exciting are the muddy roads and the instructions for getting onto the property, which read about like this: "stand facing the tree across the road from the gate and look over your left shoulder at the sixth post." I hope the people who went up there yesterday could figure that out because it's beyond me!

I spent yesterday in my snug studio enlarging one of my sketches. The large painting is not ready to post yet, but here is the sketch:

Today and tomorrow were about teaching, one of my great joys. Being with my students is like painting twelve different works because each student has different problems to solve! Friday it's back to painting...


  1. You need to be making more than one sketch so people can buy the sketches!

  2. I looove this!!! I'm not sure that it could be made any better in the studio but I look forward to seeing what you can do with it.
