In this series I worked to capture the moment by immersing the canvas into the swirling, powerful waters of the Temperance River, and then spent two years of building up layers of history and paint around each unique path the river had left on the canvas. The power of the rushing water carving the stone served as inspiration and energized my work. The waterfall moment is reflected in the way nature's marks cut through the layers of paint and various other mixed mediums I built up in the studio the way the waterfalls cut through stone.
