Dry Falls Cliffs
This is one of the paintings from Dry Falls this past weekend. Dry Falls is the remnant of the largest known waterfall in the world that occurred as a result of the Missoula Flood. Click here for a complete description of this incredible geologic event. I've actually seen the wave patterns on the land of Eastern Washington from 30,000 feet above in an airplane. The rock is a kind of blackish basalt and hard to paint as it is not luminous, but the land is beautiful and the winds over the weekend were fierce.
