Chasing Waterfalls

Last year I created a small series of plein air paintings outside around Calgary and area. "Chasing Waterfalls" (18"x24" acrylic on hardboard) was painted in one afternoon at Elbow Falls. There was hundreds of people walking past on the path, children crying, and young people jumping into the water below on the warm summer day. - Bethany Vanderputten
