Grand Prismatic Pool
Yellowstone National Park
I have been wanting to paint scenes from Yellowstone National Park for years.
It has been difficult to do since I live in the Pacific Northwest and teach classes on how to paint the beautiful landscape here. As much as I love this area, I also love Yellowstone. It is not only close to where my family resides but it is where we often holiday. It is such a grand and epic place. It also has a wonderful history with watercolor. It was Thomas Moran's watercolor sketches and paintings that helped convince congress to make it the first National Park in the world.
This past summer while I was in school, I continued to explore my passion to paint portraits and landscapes.
I gave myself permission to finally paint Yellowstone.
