"Up the Grand Park Trail" oil landscape painting by Robin Weiss

"Up the Grand Park Trail" 10x12 oil on panel     $450

  This is my last post for 2014!  It has been an amazing year! Full of plein air adventures , meeting new friends, painting spectacular scenery up the west coast into California and all the way to the Baja peninsula! I feel incredibly blessed to have the ability to pursue my love of art, full time!
   My advice is to find what you have been gifted and called to do and then get out there and work towards making that your lifes work. Sometimes you have to work other jobs until you can get there but never give up!

  This painting is from one of the photos I took a few years back of a hike up to Grand Park in Mount Rainier National Park. Another Washington location of spectacular beauty!
     
   May your year be filled with love, joy and adventure!  Happy painting and hope to see you down the trail!

lovely place and painting. Love all the colors you captured in this piece. the sweet peaceful shadows with her majesty, Mt Rainier, looming behind. I used to climb those trees!

Thank you all for the kind comments!
Somehow I deleted this one from Mitch by accident. There is a design flaw in blogger that doesn't allow you to recover deleted comments! Anyhow here it is;

I really like this one, especially the more stylized treatment of the trees with the horizontal strokes, rather than trying to recreate the individual branches in their myriad movements. And the light blue of the mountain against the bright note of yellow on the near ridge creates a wonderful sense of space and draws the eye into the heart of the painting.

What I like about this painting is that there is a lot of excitement going on around the focal point, but that area is calm and peaceful, I think because the trees and ground are painted calmly to contrast with the excitement around it. :) Which is it? The bright note of yellow or the quiet center.
