In the Valley of Ten
Moraine Lake is such a beautiful oasis among a series of rugged peaks. I love to portray the many moods of the region and especially the reflections. This piece is a play on that theme and I grabbed acrylic as a medium because I wanted to be spontaneous but also do many layers of glazing After the series of glazes I put in the opaque touches especially the snow patches that give another dimension and power to the piece. I find I try to see the regions in the shoulder seasons when things are quieter and not so many tourists.
