In the past week while I have been working on my Deer painting I have worked on several other Oils while the deer was drying. This is a view across Moraine Park in Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado. As a teenager our pastor had a cabin on Fall River at the edge of Estes Park and we often went there for a week at a time. I had the opportunity to explore Rocky Mountain and later as newly married, my brother, the friend we grew up with and our wives were still able to stay in the cabin. What a life. In more recent years I had the opportunity to illustrate a guidebook on the park. An endeavor I am really proud of. I still love painting the area. Across Moraine Park, 15"x20" Oil Painting

This is stunning. I went here a few years ago. I still have picture of the sky at sunrise that just blew me away. You capture the light so beautifully in this painting. Gary.

Hi Gary- I knew right away where this is without referring to the title. This is about 30 minutes from my home. Funny how I have recently been painting Wyoming and you Colorado! Keep up the good work :)
