Paintings of White Mountain Waterfalls

Erik Koeppel "Ripley Falls" 14 x 11 inches Oil on panel

 I love to paint waterfalls, and this summer visited many of the falls of the White Mountains, sketching most and painting a number of them. Studying the beauty of flowing water in person is a fascinating experience that I hope these paintings capture.
