Oil painting Honeymoon Lake - Selkirk Mountain Experience by Cecilia Lea

Honeymoon Lake - Selkirk Mountain Experience

Oil painting 20 x 48 inches. A large triptych. This lovely lake  is a hike of about a 30-40 minutes from Durrand Glacier Chalet,  in the Selkirk Mountains. Access to the area  is by helicopter and one can stay for a partial or full week. The Chalet is open for winter skiing and summer hiking. I had hiked up with a day pack containing my plein air painting gear and had made myself comfortable on a patch of mossy ground to paint for the afternoon. I was totally alone as the rest of the group had gone across the valley for a day hike. It was delightful, so peaceful. An artist’s dream. I liked the small study so well I did this
