Only In My Dreams

Although it is very important to reference from your own photos, once in a while you come across a photograph that really resonates with you. Such was the case with this photo....it really was calling my name. Elias was gracious enough to grant me permission to paint from his wonderful photo. My intention was not to 'copy' but be inspired. Although this mountain range is not in Canada, I wanted to create the impression that it could be in the Rockies. I enjoyed painting this, and it came together so quickly it even surprised me. acrylic 40 x 40 inches. Elias photo below:
