“Waterfall in Misty Mountains”

24 x 30 original oil on canvas. Painting by artist Billye Woodford.

“Having spent much time in the northwest and seeing scenes with waterfalls and majestic misty mountains in the background, I was inspired to paint one such scene. I know many have the same experience and recall their beauty too, but there are those who might not have had the pleasure. I hope this painting will inspire those who haven’t to get out and do some traveling, and to remind those who have of the beauty they’ve seen.”
