This 77-foot waterfall, located in Paterson, New Jersey was formed by the latest glaciation event, which also carved Glacial Lake Passaic. During the industrial revolution, the power of these falls was harnessed to power manufacturing companies and locomotives. Today, this area is preserved for its beauty and history. I decided to paint this waterfall not because of its history or size, but because of an idea I had for a sepia style silhouette light effect.

As a family, we love adventuring to Blooming Hill Farm. It is an organic farm located in South Blooming Grove, NY. Salad greens and root veggies are always available there in the middle of winter. The folks that run the place are the best! There are also these old rusty trucks laying around on the property. I’m not sure what the story is, but I’m pretty sure they don’t run anymore. One thing is for sure – they make an excellent subject matter for a watercolor painting!
Here is another old rusty truck painting from Blooming Hill Farm. This painting found a home with our friends Jordan and Miranda.
Inspired by a beautiful photo taken by Waterloo Village staff, here is a watercolor painting of a winter scene from Waterloo Village Historical Landmark, located in Stanhope, New Jersey. The village is a restored 19th century canal town, which was rightfully the land that the Lenape people inhabited. The land eventually became a port along the industrious Morris Canal. Preserved in the village today are gristmill, sawmill, blacksmith shop, and many other historic houses. A trip to Waterloo Village is sure to take you through at least 400 years of New Jersey history!
