Monument Falls is a transition on the Ausable River in the Adirondacks near Lake Placid NY. Not far from two other areas I have painted, Shadow Rock and The Flats, the falls is a spot where anglers will set up below the white water in hopes to catch a beauty of a Trout or Salmon. As difficult as it is the the fishermen to get to the low points, I too had to walk a distance from a parking area with my camera. My wife was usually along, and would try to be very patient while I stopped every time something grabbed my eye along the road that paralleled the river. Of course, there are other drivers behind that don’t appreciate the fact that I’m not keeping pace. Little do they know an artist is looking for his next inspiration. The results of all this is one of my favorite watercolors. From the time I located the falls until I had the drawing on the paper, I was confident this would be a successful work.

About the canvas printing: The canvas prints are prepared for standard framing stretcher thickness. When the canvas arrives, lay it out to relax for a day or so. Take it to a framer who will build a stretcher and wrap the canvas. The frame you selected will then be made to fit. Dust the surface off regularly without solvents. Remember the top and back of the artwork as well to keep the spiders from making a home. We hope you have many years of enjoying your artwork. Thank you.
