"Southfork Falls" 8 x 10" acrylic study
In some places south fork of the Rio Grande River hammers it's way through the boulders and pines.
Depending on the rain, sometimes it's shallow. Sometimes, It's way more noisy.
The aroma of the pines and fresh mountain water is intoxicating.
The first thing I always want to do is drink it, but fumbling over the huge boulders is a dangerous proposition. More than once, I've slipped and fallen down toward the river.
It always makes me wonder what I would do if I was incapacitated and unable to climb back up to road.
The roar of the river would definitely drown out any cries for help.
Nevertheless, I always do it, addicted to that first taste of pure mountain water.
This 8 x 10" acrylic study focuses on the fresh mountain water splashing down from up above.
