North Georgia is the home to so many waterfalls that supposedly the original name for the region in Cherokee translates roughly into “Land of a Thousand Waterfalls.” In 2018 I started exploring them with a backback full of art supplies. Walking to waterfalls and painting them quickly became one of my very favorite things to do. In 2019 I set myself the goal of visiting and drawing or painting as many of the water falls in the area as possible. I did not set myself a strict geographical area but started with a list from The Northeast Georgian. The article has since been taken off line, so now I use word of mouth and google to find the next one to explore.

Most of the paintings are done completely on site in about two hours. I have written about the experience of painting many of them on my blog.

If your home needs a waterfall painting they are available for sale. 9×12″ original waterfall paintings are $200. Open edition 8×10″ matted prints are $20. Larger canvases will be available soon. Shop…

I have a  Google map that I am trying to keep updated for those who want to explore these beautiful spots themselves. I also recommend the site as an comprehenisve source of information to review before setting out to try a new trail.)

I have been using this page to track my progress. Click on the name of waterfall or a date to see pictures and read about my visit.
