New York Waterfalls

Summer Mosaic 2018

There is something so calming about the sound of a waterfall and something so serene about watching the water flow.  The more I dove into researching locations for my project of 50 New York Waterfalls, the more excited I was to find out just how many waterfalls were hidden within the area that makes up the Finger Lakes Region.  

Visiting each location was an adventure and I soon fell in love with each waterfalls’ unique beauty.  When you study them in fine detail they all look so different (they even sometimes sound different).  Each painting in this series has captured a moment in time and represents my journey discovering these locations – most for the first time.

Each painting is 6×6 acrylic on wood panel.  Selected paintings from this project are available for purchase.
