Firehole River at Twilight

18x24 oil "Firehole River at Twilight"
A few years ago our family had an extended hiking vacation in Yellowstone and Grand Tetons national parks. During an evening hike we crossed the flat wide Firehole river to view a lesser known basin of geysers near the Old Faithful Lodge. I created the painting above based on a series of photographs I took that evening when the sun was low in the sky. I've been painting on 18 x 24 inch canvases lately and I really love this format for the landscape.
