Niagara Falls (2002), 18 x 24"

This is the first oil painting I ever did. It was a high school art class project; we got to pick our own subjects and paint in our own style. The painting is based on a photo my dad took of Niagara Falls, back when my family lived in Buffalo, NY. I tried depict swift movement in the water. The mist was a special challenge; I tried to make it both three-dimensional and transparent.

As I recall, my art teacher was not thrilled about it.
