White Water Tumble

My husband once asked me "why do you do waterfalls all the time?"..

Well as you can see with my past posts, I don't all the time, however they are in my heart as is all water. Must be pretty waterlogged I guess, all that Aussie sun and surf! Not to mention my 12 years on Maui!

This one began with an abstract underlay, in fact I will post the steps after this post, just so you might see the process of the painting.

I never quite know how these will turn out, a little nervewracking, but fun just the same, makes the old heart get anxious at times. Ha ha.

Oooh, this is gorgeous, Rae! I reminds me of the waterfall near the farmhouse in Provence where I stayed with Eileen's group of artists two years ago- what do you think, Vic?

Thanks so much everyone, I am glad you liked this one so much.

I have to say it was fun to paint, a challenge for me to make it all pull together. Thanks again said...

Well, the Jungians say that water is the symbol for the process of life and death - it's very profound. You are probably tapping into something very deep and mysterious - and, of course, beautiful. Just gorgeous. I could look at it all day long.
