Several layers of glazes create rich tones that blend with the shadows in harmony. I was inspired by Hooker Falls, which flows on the Little River through the DuPont State Forest. It is one of four major waterfalls on the Little River in this area, the others being High Falls, Triple Falls, and Bridal Veil Fall. This piece is on gallery wrapped canvas and the painting continues around the sides. It comes varnished and ready to hang.
There are more places Kent Sullivan would like to paint than he ever will be able. Employing many of the Hudson River School methods in his landscapes, Kent captures the ephemeral interactions of clouds, sun and earth with his delicate use of color and gesture. His work is published in two prominent books: "Art of the National Parks" and "Picturing Florida." He has lectured at museums and been sought after by many large corporations. “Several years ago I had the incredible fortune of being part of the NASA art program. Five paintings are now part of the Smithsonian Collection. At one gathering at the Kennedy Space Center, Leonard Nimoy came up and asked me for my autograph!”

The painting was purchased because of its colors, the theme and Mr. Sullivan's profile. Mr. Sullivan thank you for this beautiful artwork which will be enjoyed by the family for years to come. The promptness in shipping this art work to me is appreciated.- M Sobko
I purchased Still Water Shadows. I just completed getting it framed and it looks lovely in my living room. Every time I look at it, it reminds of growing up in upstate New York. Thanks.- K Harrison
