Taccoa Falls


Taccoa Falls is a beautiful waterfall in northeast Georgia that I first visited with my wife, when we were first dating. Soon after she graduated from medical school, and I wanted to give her a special gift. I painted this for her to remember that time.

I used impasto technique to capture the physicality of the falling water. I really enjoy the way the abstract patterns in the rock create the illusion of  the way the stone moves in and out. I used a complementary color palette, to create the balance, and visual interest in this painting.
