“Chilling at Petrohue Falls” 16×20 oil painting by Dawn B. Dwyer
While on a cruise with my mother and cousin we discovered this spectacular sight. This was our first port of call … Puerto Montt, Chile. When we arrived at the port we got off the boat and immediately boarded a bus which transported us to this incredible place. The sight was magnificent, it was a place called Petrohue Rapids. It was so beautiful; I just wanted to jump in the water and swim. As you can see the water was so pure, the color of a swimming pool and the sound of the rushing water just filled up your senses. It just was such a beautiful sight. I knew as I stood there that day I would paint this incredible sight hidden away in South America.
