This dramatic original oil painting depicts the “River of Golden Dreams” near Whistler, British Columbia. It is executed on an 18″ X 24″ archival Masonite panel with a linen overlay. The panel has a 2″ birch cradle with a natural, hand rubbed finish, which serves as a contemporary frame.
I might add that while I was standing on the bridge composing this painting, a huge black bear walked out of the forest and came toward the bridge. I smiled and walked calmly backwards while it smiled and walked calmly toward me, gaining ground. Fortunately it decided to exit the trail and finish it’s lunch, which did not include me, in the bushes. Who says art is not exciting?
