Listening to the water fall from the ever turning turbine, time slowly passes while my imagination takes me to simpler times. I then knew that I had to capture this amazing palette on canvas to share with the world. This piece invites its audience to partake in a relaxing adventure along the Mississippi River, in a time where our troubles cannot come to be a nuisance.
