Artist’s Comments

I was hiking up a trail to Castle Lake near Mount Shasta, CA, when I noticed a crystal clear creek called Ney Springs,  heard a faint sound of water rushing and  decided to follow the creek. The sound grew louder as I hiked along the banks of the creek that became steeper. Then the creek turned downward and flowed over boulders covered in moss and created a pool of water. I climbed over the boulders, I looked up to see a magnificent waterfall right front of me.
Remote Faery Falls is truly a sacred site. If you are silent, you hear only the sounds of falling water. Being at Faery Falls is like reading a magical children’s storybook that takes you into an imaginary wonderland where you believe that fairies do exist.  I walked up to the waterfall and let the surging energy of the water wash over me. I began to feel more vibrant and alive. This has become a place where I go to re-connect with nature. In this painting, the Elk represents me in this location and reflects the inner stillness I feel when I am in the presence of the magical Faery Falls.
