This was a study in subtle color shifts — the reflections in the water and the areas where you can see through the water to the rocks below. Quite a challenge! This is an 8 x 14 oil painting on canvas panel. I'm calling it Rocky Mountain Lake. It's available in my Etsy shop. Click here to get details.

I am really happy with how this painting turned out. So happy I'm going to hang on to it for a while. Sometimes everything just comes together. I happened to use a canvas that had a pink tint on it from a painting I'd wiped out once upon a time. That pink tint was perfect under the snow. The light on the rabbit and grass behind as the sun was going down was a beautiful orange. I found a frame in my collection that has a copper inset which is a perfect compliment. All I can do is say "Thank you."
