limestone lake 24 x 36 incheslimestone lake 24 x 36 inches

This painting is titled ‘ limestone lake ‘ it measures out at 24  inches x 36 inches, completed in oil on canvas.

I have painted this particular scene twice now, each with slight differences to the other.  In the first painting I had painted in the shadows from the trees along the lakes edge.  I have omitted them in this painting to give the lake a more clearly etched outline, as well a slight variation on the season.

This wilderness park, Height of the Rockies, was established in 1995 and is about a 550 square kilometers area.  There no roads that yet penetrate the park boarders but, some resource roads that lead to trail heads.  The park boasts over 60 lakes, many glaciers, alpine and sub-alpine meadows.   

This Park lies adjacent to Banff National Park, Elk Lakes Park and Peter Lougheed Park in Alberta

It is available for purchase for $ 625.00.             Thank you, JJ.
