acrylic and oil on canvas 16"x20"
This was a fun painting to paint; although I should have drawn it so that the creek behind the fall took up more space on the canvas rather than the water in front of the fall, but overall I'm happy with the composition and the colors. It reminds me of a warm day just as autumn is really showing her colors and I can't decide if it's truly warm enough still to go swimming or if I should just sit and listen to the sounds of the water gurgling and splashing...

16"x20" acrylic and oil on canvas paper
This is one of my all time favorites. It doesn't look so good up close, but from far away I think it is stunning. This one I did on commission for one of the ladies at work who brought in a photo and asked if I could paint it. It came out wonderfully. I will bring it to her this week and see how much she will offer to pay for it - I'll probably only ask $20, but if she wants to pay more I wouldn't object.
