About this painting: This painting was created from my memory, and images I took at Banff National Park in Alberta, Canada. It is a magical place with a feeling that you have arrived at the gates of heaven. The air is clean, crips and cool as it rests gently on your face. The mountains continue forever into the distance, capped with snow and glaciers. The sky is big, and blue. A place I like to return every now in my mind and with the paint brushes.
