|In the vigorous Water and Rocks series, pastels of water sites in Yosemite National Park by RICHARD LOPEZ one can almost hear the water crashing over rocks as it courses down the mountain. Light leaps about the foaming rapids and all is in motion. Upper Ploydome Lake II, a sumptuous and languid close-up of light on still water transports the viewer to a contemplative revery while Bridal Veil, Yosemite III and View From Above depict cinematic vistas with water falling on a grand scale. Lopez deftly captures the changing aspects and moods of water.|
