Island Lake

Island Lake
"Island Lake" is one of the most beautiful places on the planet.  I stumbled upon this  lodge and Provencal Park near Fernie, British Columbia Canada last summer. While I hiked in old growth forests around this quiet mountain lake,  I was constantly taking reference pictures as I was inspired the entire time.  I want to return and stay longer.
This new oil painting is for sale.  For more information please contact me.
