I painted most of this earlier this month, but the water going over the falls was reduced to a trickle because of the lack of rain here. I listened to the downpour we had Saturday night, and knew that the falls would be running decently, so headed out there early Sunday morning
to fill in the water in the painting. I may paint there again once the leaves change.

Hudson, Ohio is near Cleveland, Ohio, and is a picture-perfect example of New England architecture. This area, called "The Western Reserve", was land set aside for payment of Revolutionary War soldiers in the Connecticut Line companies for their service in lue of money, which the young nation had none to spare. They brought their building methods and styles with them, and Hudson is living proof of it.
