This is a location that I have painted often - Rimrock Springs. The history dates back to early homesteaders, who settled in this valley because of the natural springs. The remains of the old cabin are still on the far shore but the area is now a wildlife refuge so public access is limited.

Each time I paint this location I find something unique, and I believe that each painting gets better in part because I am so familiar with certain elements that I'm able to focus on a single emotional statement. At least that's my hope.
