Day 12/30…

So here’s my day 12 sketch. It was from a pic I took while on a weekend trip to Kootenay Park Lodge – a beautiful part of the world along one of my favourite stretches of highway between castle Junction and Radium in the south west corner of BC. I rented a little rustic cabin and toured on the motorcycle looking for inspiration. I went into Radium one day to get some gas and realized I didn’t have my wallet. Radium is about 67km away and I made the trip there, back to KPL, and back to Radium on fumes. My bike has more range than I thought. 🙂

Beside the lodge is this beautiful stretch of the Kootenay River that I have driven by for decades but oddly never stopped. This was the inspiration for the trip. It has the most beautiful blue water and meanders lazily along the rocky banks and oddly, this is the only spot that looks like this. After snapping a few pics the light changed and I sat on edge and became very peaceful.

    Perfect color for water in the Rockies. You should do a companion piece and paint it in winter.
