Framed 13" x 16" Limited Edition Giclee Print, 2012 (Age 16)
I had just sold my award-winning Guardian of the Karst painting to a collector who was opening a gallery in the South of France. When another collector of mine saw it, she was smitten that it had already sold! So she commissioned me to do another bird of prey, giving me the choice of which species but suggesting one with a bit more colour. I had just taken some great photos of a Peregrine Falcon at a birds of prey show at Ball's Falls Conservation Area. I also took photos of the falls there, and combined them with photos I had taken of Webster’s Falls in Hamilton to create the composition for falls and cliffs in this painting. I had never done water like this before, so it was a new challenge that I enjoyed. I thought the title was quite fitting too.
