Waterfalls -Paint Party Friday


One never knows what one might see near a waterfall. In the woods where I played as a child, places where the water fell through the forest were wondrous. Down through Leprechaun Valley there were playful little waterfalls tumbling over rock and mossy rill. There were small clear pools where the sunlight would glisten down through the vine maples, to reflect dapples of light up into our faces.

I have not lost my love for waterfalls. My family and I visited Niagara Falls in 2001 and 2002. Someday I shall draw the dancing mist maidens I saw there.

Happy Paint Party Friday, all you wonderful artists and beautiful people. God bless you, dear ones.  Have a lovely weekend and thank you for dropping by.

When i come to your blog i don't come only for the visuals but also the stories that accompany them. Together they talk about the lives of the fairies, gods and goddesses...We need dreams much more than the realities sometimes.Thank you for sharing Beth :)

That is so clever how the deep blue water falls from the rock-lady and ripples out.
