Montana

I did this oil painting of St.Mary Lake
in Glacier National Park, Montana. It
lies on the eastern side of Glacier
National Park. We couldn't believe how
beautiful this lake was. Great place to
visit with lots of hiking trails!!

  2. Maravilloso, puedo ver la grandeza del paisaje y su soledad. El color azul hace que sienta la frialdad del entorno.

    Wonderful, I can see the grandeur of the scenery and its loneliness. The blue color makes me feel the coldness of the surroundings.

  20. Thank you so much GWEN for your nice comment. Lake Mary was so beautiful..So much blue all around that it almost blended into one another. It took my breath away!!

    Thank you CLAIRE for your comments. This is my third oil and I really like it..never thought I would ..I was always afraid of it. It's so different from pastels..very creamy but I love pastels as well...in fact, I'm working on one now.
