Hiking early in the morning led to the discovery of a peaceful vista across still waters. This painting captures the solitude and emotion of the moment.

The brush strokes in this Open Impressionist painting are lively and thickly applied, full of vibrant color and texture. The painting was created on gallery-depth canvas, with the painting wrapped around the sides.
