I was astonished at the site of Yosemite; a lush green U shaped valley between the high rock walls of El Capitan and the towering Yosemite Falls. For centuries, artists the world over have been captivated by this awe inspiring vision. As I try to capture this majestic beauty before me, the colors dance around my mind, vibrancy which can only be found in lush natural beauty such as this. As the canvas came to fruition, I realized just how blessed I was to be witness of the iconic beauty that stood before me. Embrace this wonder of God’s creation as I guide you through the high peaks of the Sierra Nevada with the brush of inspiration that was gifted to me.
