This is a painting I made of Niagara Falls. As a native of the Buffalo, NY region, I felt this would be a nice way to represent my heritage and home town. Although, technically, this view is from the Canadian side. However, it is a view of Niagara Falls, New York.

The observation deck is no larger than my fingernail. Upon close inspection, you can see some of the detail work in my brush strokes and how I was able to achieve the shadows and highlights with a very small 00 size brush.

Some more details reveal Goat Island and the Niagara River with the smoke stack and power plant in the background.
