In the Artist’s Words:
“This painting was inspired by several trips to Grand Teton National Park and was painted from both plein air studies and reference photos I took there. The majesty of these mountains reminded me of a grand cathedral. The ethereal light that bathed the mountains and the bright light reflecting on the river on this particular day made me feel like I was standing in heaven. The rhythm of the trees was like a visual hymn. It was a very spiritual experience and is what I hoped to portray in the painting.”
