Lava Falls is one of north America's largest navigable rapids. This frothy rapid is all a lone at mile 179. Hard to paint. So much is going on. But, one time I was below the rapid for three days while we waited for another private trip to join up with. I sketched and painted, and from that experience I have painted 4 Lava paintings.
If you look closely at this one there is a tiny dory boat just entering the rapid.
