Dragons in Her Mist. I saw an apparition of the mighty Niagara's Dragon at the foot of the American Falls as I painted this scene. It was a simulacra that appeared in the torrential thundering mist and waterfalls. In the distance a second dragon apparition appeared in a vertical ascent. The sky depicts the City of Light as an ideal image, appearing through an atmospheric lens, the lighthouse links Buffalo's City Hall to the Pharos Lighthouse of Alexandria and the goddess Isis.
