Description This painting is of one the many high mountain lakes of Idaho. Nestled in the Sawtooth mountain wilderness this pristine country is amazing to visit and reminds me of the wonderful places the West has to offer, I crossed over a small stream and saw this lovely scene and I knew I had to paint it. Captured in an impressionistic painting with a high attention to detail. This scene evokes the magic of one of those private moments in nature when you experience something truly spectacular.
Kevin McCain, Boise Member Since June 2011 Artist Statement I am a professional artist and children's book illustrator. In my paintings I use vibrant colors and thick impasto to give my paintings a life and vitality that capture the viewer’s attention. I strive for a dreamy quality to my paintings. To make them more reminiscent of memories rather than an illustration of a particular scene. The impression of the landscape is more important than the actual content.
