Wallowa Lake is a beautiful and iconic location, which we are privileged to enjoy regularly. The stunning sunrise and sunsets in Wallowa county, and our enjoyment of the lake inspired this painting. I was attempting to paint this at the lake... but had to retire to the studio due to rain!
Shortly after leaving Enterprise, Oregon when headed toward La Grande on the left side of the road is a grove of trees that always catches my eye. It is not big, and there is nothing about it that should make it stand out from any other similar grove of trees. But I always look at it... wondering what might live there. This painting shows my imagination of who lives there.
