The view from Floating Island #045

This is the view, looking west, from Floating Island Lake, a little pond where we spend many hours watching while in Yellowstone National Park. Pond watching was dull at the time, so I took advantage of the opportunity to paint. Normally in mid April these slopes would have more snow, but this year there was very little snow at the lower elevations. Painted in my Stillman and Birn 'extra Heavy Weight paper/rough surface' sketchbook. It is 180# paper -- heavy enough to draw and paint on both sides of the sheet. ... Thank you, Teri Casper, for introducing me to this paper!

You have conveyed he character of each of those tress, and of the hillside and sky and distant mountains, with such ease. A peaceful an compelling scene.
