Under the Falls at Yosemite

 11x14 Pastel  $200.00

I started this pastel while in California, right after we returned from our week in Yosemite.  I never finished it, although I've been puttering around with it for awhile.   As usual,  I sometimes lose interest in a painting, put it away and then pull it out later.  Sometimes years later.....and finish it.  Although we're now in New York, I decided to finish it yesterday, before starting one of Cape Cod.  That mist in the background gave me trouble, as this is a view of the running water under the Bridleveil Falls, where the mist turns into rain as you get closer to the Falls.  It's really fabulous to stand so close, but I just love the rushing water further back.  It reminds me of the Adirondacks, too.
