Not a fitting name for this little gem of a lake above Tuolumne Meadows in Yosemite N.P. but worth the hike!

Really lovely painting Randy. The water is my favourite part I think it looks wonderful. I would have liked to have seen some of your funky colours used though :)

I love this Randy, and are you kidding? My dogs are my guardian angels here on earth, nothing I love more (spouse runs a close second) :lol:

This is a gem of a lake and you've done it justice. I would love to visit it!
Just barking great!

Beautiful Randy. Nice composition and wonderful use of greens. I like the detail in the foreground tress also, very nice.

Gorgeous Randy, I like the bit of blue repeating everywhere. You sure have some beautiful places where you live.

Thanks, everyone.

I had a wonderful afternoon the day I hiked up there last Summer. I didn't paint but took a lot of photos and spent a while fly fishing. Caught a beautiful little brookie off of the bank. Hope I can get back there this summer!
