Shady Cascade, 2007
oil on linen, 23 1/4" x 21 1/2"
The road to Tate City, Georgia is amazing. Along the way are views of the upper Tallulah River as it begins. There are huge rocks and little cascades everywhere. The woods are thick at times and the light is filtered through the woods, making all kinds of great scenes for the taking. I could spend all day at any of several points along the way and never run out of things to work with. In this concentrated place I found this spot, late in a Winter afternoon when the sun streaked along with intense angles and the water looked dark and green in the pale colors around it.
