Twin Falls Waterfall Diptych
“Waterfall Basin at North Edge of Twin Falls”, 12×24 oil on canvas, by Rog Lyngaas, 14apr08, using choate7 palette.
This is the second painting of the Twin Falls Waterfall Diptych; I suggested and made two months. The first was posted earlier, and you can see it again below.

This is not one of the twin falls that the city in Idaho is named after. Neither is Shoshone Falls. The actual “twin falls” is a waterfall that still exists — underwater, in a reservoir; so it is in our dreams. Yes, we have drowned the twins; for the sake of power and water.
Fred Choate has painted Twin Falls. And there are picture postcards of the Twin Falls. Someday maybe I will find one of those old postcards and paint Twin Falls from one. Until then, I will have to settle for paintings like this canyon wallfall.
