Lily Marsh Pond II

This is a full-sheet painting (almost three feet wide), but the subject is a tiny wild rose probably no more that one and a half inches in diameter. At such a scale, the exquisite beauty found in the colors, shapes, and shadows of this blossom may go unremarked--but they didn't elude me. These bushy wildflowers were growing in profusion in May at the Lily Marsh Pond in Ponderosa State Park, McCall, Idaho.


"Cascade" is in the private collection of Mr. and Mrs. Harry Young.
