"Yosemite Falls and the Merced River", 8x8 pastel on yellow Canson
Saturday, January 14, 2012
Seven months ago I was in this place below and taking my reference photo! Lovely Yosemite Falls and the Merced River below it. I climbed the trail to the top of this Falls many years ago and thought I'd die along the way. It was the hardest hike ever. Of course, I wasn't in the best shape that year to start with, but I really thought it would be easier. Phew! I'm glad I did it, though. Now I'll have to be content with trying to paint it in pastel, and dream of the day when we can go back there again.
