Molas Lake

What could be more scenic than the combination of a flower-filled mountain meadow with a lake and the snow-capped Rocky Mountains as a backdrop? A triple dose of beauty… impossible for a landscape painter to resist.

I did a plein air (outdoor) watercolor study of Molas Lake, near the town of Silverton, Colorado, and used that study and photos to make this acrylic painting.

The original painting was sold to a private collector by an art gallery in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
