After working a while on my Big Horn Sheep challenge yesterday I was wasting time going through some old paintings wondering if there was any salvage to the pile and dug this oil painting out. After not looking at it for some time[years]I could definitely see why it had not sold at a gallery I had it in in Saratoga, Wyoming. Embarrassing. But with potential. So through the afternoon I reworked the whole thing keeping pretty much the drawing and mood I enhanced and freshened up the detail. Am now pretty happy with it.
It is from a series of lakes high in the Snowy Range in southern Wyoming and a favorite area of mine. I discovered a series of lakes from climbing up to bench to bench while exploring a mountain stream. Real adventures can be had by the unexpected finds along the way. How is it said? It is not the destination but the journey.
