This was the first real bushwhack waterfall that we ever went and found. It is called School House Falls and it's in Van Buren County. It began to rain on us as we were heading back to the car and we took shelter for a while in an old abandoned barn.
I took a photo of this place near Snowball, Arkansas about a month and a half ago or so. We were going to visit my wife's grave and I made a stop along the way to take a look the old Snowball General Store which was for sale at the time. On the way, I got a text from my cousin-in-law telling me that my uncle was not doing very well. We went to visit him one last time. He passed later that evening.
This was my first foray back into plein air painting after breaking my wrist at the beginning of January. This is Falling Water Falls again. I think this is the 3rd or 4th painting of it I have done. It was a very cold day and I remember being worried I might fall and re-injure my wrist as I made my way back and forth from the van with my supplies down steep slope to where I was setting up. Many photographers came and went, snapping hundreds of pictures, as I stood there in the cold making one single one.
