The Little Blue Falls

This painting of the McKensie River was done for Pam's Monthly Painting Challenge.

It took me along time to get around to doing it, because I wasn't sure what I wanted to do with her photo. But once I got started it only took about 30 minutes to finish. I moved the tree to the other side to reveal the falls, added the rocks - the rest is the same. The intense blue of the water was the photo's main  feature. I like the way the painting turned out.

This painting finally got posted - sort of. Since I couldn't get her site to accept my password, I emailed Pam and she posted the pic herself, (she didn't know what the problem could be) but for some reason it is chopped down in size.

4.5"x6" acrylic on linen   $35.
