This painting depicts an unnamed alpine lake in the Crazy Mountains in Montana. Since it is unnamed, I felt Spirit Lake was appropriate. We camped right across the lake with this view you see in the painting. In the morning, the sun rose and when it started peaking over the mountains - it blasted its rays in all directions, lighting up the bright greens of the trees and illuminating the water. The sun heated my skin as the birds woke up and the water glistened - and in that moment, I gave the lake my own name - Spirit Lake.
This painting will bring that morning sunblast to wherever it is hung - a perfect gift for yourself or a loved one.
