Under the Falls at Yosemite
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.
