"Eternal Descent" Oil Painting

16x40, Oil on Canvas

After finishing, "White Cascade" I wanted to do another one but more in stages.  My actual thought was to have a waterfall that looked like tree branches but I'm not sure I got that.  It's hard to paint things that are just in your mind as if in a dream.

I thought about the throne of God as the River of Life is said to pour from it.  I liked the feeling that there is no end and no beginning (just as He is that way).  The mist lends itself to a mystery just through the water.  I also thought of evergreens being a symbol of eternal life.

My palette was Ultramarine Blue, Titanium White, Paynes Grey and a hint of Sap Green.
