"Before the Falls", Oil on Canvas, 9x12, $75
The last painting of the group is again above Deadline Falls. Not only is the view great but the sound of the falls below is almost deafening. On top of that, the mist coming off the falls along with the steady breeze heading up the river both help to offset the summer heat. Add to that the continual parade of Steelhead jumping the falls and you have a day on the North Umpqua.
