Bob Demarest solves difficult with simple • June 4, 2015


And here I am again! I’ve just now received an email and new image from my partner in art, Bob Demarest!


Last autumn, a canoeing enthusiast and friend of his took him around the bend and deep into the chasm of the Great Falls in Paterson, NJ.


Bob said it was like entering a cathedral. The result has been several truly wonderful paintings. One has eluded him however, despite several attempts. It’s a seemingly simple picture of his buddy paddling up into the very throat on his own to see if it was safe before taking Bob. It was. They did it, and Bob has wanted a painting commemorating that moment ever since. He has at last conquered the image, by leaving most of it a tasty pencil rendering. There is color only where it counts most.
