Echo at Treeline
This image pays homage to the majesty of the Colorado landscape. I set up test shots at Rocky Mountain National Park. I explored several different locations but decided upon tree line, 11,000 feet above sea level where the pines twist and the forest surrenders itself to tundra and lichen covered boulders. I set up a large mirror beneath a huddle of twisted pine. The silver bowls reflected a breathtaking view of the Continental Divide. The weather cooperated for a couple of hours and I double-checked my photo references that evening in Estes Park where I tried to stay awake long enough to see the Perseid Meteor Shower.
This painting is responsible for my acceptance into the highly regarded International Guild of Realism. It is an honor to be included into a group of master painters in the genre of Realism. A few months later I was contacted by Southwest Art Magazine and included in their May 2012 Edition that focused on the still life.
