My husband and I visited Niagara Falls many summers ago. It wasn't a honeymoon, but still a lot of fun. An awesome place! I still remember the thunderous sound of the mighty waterfalls. Soon after I came back, I painted this postcard-sized painting; it took less than 30 minutes. You cannot get any more "fresh" than that. The painting was juried into the Art League show in Alexandria, VA in 1999.
My late mother, who had a dry sense of humor, said when she saw the piece: "That's a lot of water for such a tiny painting." After I had my daughter at the age of 39, I would go on and on about how cute she was. Her response: "Even porcupines find their babies adorable, I am sure." Oh, I miss her.
