I live in an area which includes the Niagara Escarpment.  This is a ridge of cliffs that runs from Tobermory (Lake Huron Bruce peninsula) to  down past Niagara Falls.  I can spent days walking in this area.  There are five major waterfalls, some of which you have seen on this blog […]

HAPPY VALENTINES to all Inglis Falls.  11″x14″  Watercolour. This is the largest of the five major falls in my area.  I’ve had a lot of trouble doing the falls. This was my third attempt.  I like some of the  painting but still not completely satisfied. I may try again at a later date.
