New > Waterfalls

The Waterfall Paintings are inspired by a chapter in Zen Mind, Beginners Mind by Shunryu Suzuki comparing human life to a waterfall. The steep drop, crashes, separation from the river are perhaps all things we can relate to. I continue to work on this series to capture not only the ideas in this metaphor but also the illumination in the water, its transparency, and the light and mists around it.

Artists have painted waterfalls from ancient times in many countries, particularly in Asia and I follow in this tradition.
