There are some places in my memory that are so much a part of me, that I feel the need to express them in my painting. This place is one of them. A few years ago my husband and I were visiting the Bayfield, Wisconsin area. Since I'm always on the lookout for scenic photography as reference, we asked the locals where we could find some waterfalls.
That day we took a drive to a little town called Cornicopia. People were so friendly and helpful. They told us about a waterfall hidden in the forest about five miles in. The only way to get there was to hike on the ATV trails. No problem, right? Well, we hiked back there and were rewarded by a beautiful, pristine waterfall. I got lots of beautiful shots of the waterfall and river. It was indeed worth the ten mile hike that day. Except for the deer ticks!
