Painting evokes the beautiful site of the Havasu Falls along the Havasu Creek in the Grand Canyon, Arizona, in the Fall. One can hear the roar of the water fall in the aqua color plunge pool below that gets its vivid color from the calcium carbonate content. The painting transports the viewer to this gem of nature that inspires both awe and peace. The work was painted with acrylic on stretched canvas, the sides are painted, it is signed on the side, and it is ready to be hung.
Alina Deutsch was born in Bucharest, Romania and has lived in the United States for the last 45 years, mostly in Westchester County, New York. In addition to being both a successful electrical engineer and a cookbook translator and publisher, she enjoys painting and multi-media crafts. In this, she has been inspired by her mother, Estera Rogers, now 96, who has created beautiful oil paintings for many years. Both women have followed in the footsteps of their relative, Klein Hanni, who painted in her native town of Deva, in Transylvania, throughout her life. Alina has been creative for over 40 years but in 2009 she was given a new impetus. She retired from her engineering career and found a new outlet in her art. Suddenly she felt re-energized and confident, as if reconnecting with an old friend, her love of painting. She is now devoting her full-time to creative pursuits.
