Waterfalling (oil on canvas 10 x 20 in.)
The falls were exhilarating! There were five or six of them, with hardly 20 metres of smooth water between them. At least one was long and narrow, a crevasse with white water churning through, and one, a long series of steps for the water to sashay down, flirting white crinolines all the way. One, overlooked by a scraggy leaning Cedar like an old shaman was high and narrow, a plunging column of white violence, and then there was the one that I call "The Teeth" - wide and high, a classic waterfall over rocky ramparts that project above its crest like blunt teeth with gaps between.
This portrait of a small part of one of the falls I found about half way down. To me these wilderness waterfalls are expressive of freedom and purity, the energy of water and air shouting and tumbling together, clashing, splashing, and churning - ionizing the air and oxygenizing the water and the result is pure joy!
