Linda Toomey , Niagara 20, 2012; gouache

"I'm inspired by water. I incorporate water in most of my paintings, but usually the peaceful , placid waters and reflections of river and coastal marshes. Niagara falls provides a whole new approach and challenge to this artist. The powerful flow, the majesty and the mist are truly inspiring to me. I painted Niagara Falls for the first time in a graduate painting class over forty years ago. I've since done over twenty paintings and the "falls" still remain a challenge and inspiration." -Linda Toomey
