Last night, wicked storms moved through the mountains, leaving more than an inch of rain in its path. The river was high and moving fast. It caught my attention as we drove by, so I chose to paint there. I've painted moving water before, but not moving as fast as this water was. About three-quarters of the way through my painting, I was thinking maybe it would have been much more simple to paint something that held still!
Here is a photo of my painting (I totally forgot to take a photo of it at the scene) and then more photos of our group.
