Wonderful Lake O'Hara!

Cathedral Mountain, plein air oil painting, 8 x 10"
This is the first painting that I did on my Lake O'Hara hiking/painting trip. This view of Cathedral Mountain was painted from the shores of Schaffer Lake. I should have continued on to McArthur Lake as the day was incredible, but I was too wimpy to do the additional climb. By the end of the trip, I saw that this hike was the easiest one of the lot! The larches were turning to gold, the perfect foil for the violet shadows on the mountain.
Enjoy... stay tuned for more!
