This is a painting I did a while ago, but it is one of my favorites. There was a place on the lake where you could jump off the rocks into the water. It was quite a drop, but everyone loved it; especially kids. A developer bought the property and it is now closed to the public. I painted this when there were rumors about the impending sale because I knew it would be a little part of Smith Mountain Lake history. It will always be known as "The Cliffs" to most of us.
