Steeple Rock-Hurricane Ridge ONP

Watercolor Framed 16x20
Sometimes it is fun  to be very particular about a scene, sort of enjoying it in depth, studying  all its detail, trying to travel with the eye where the legs can't carry me.  Actually I think that's why I enjoy painting so much, it is like meditating on  a place, really seeing it. If I were a bird I would fly from top to top of these spectacular mountains.
      The road, wrapped abound the last turn before the top of  this birds eye, feels like the thinner air and the sense of  mountain majesty
that makes Olympic National Park such a  treasure.
