While everyone was taking pictures of the Bow River Falls, I noticed the view from across the waterfall. It fascinated me, I wondered where the river was going.

Inspired a road trip from Calgary to Banff, I wondered what it would be like to just stop on the side of the road to sit on the plains and gaze at the wide expansive skies distant mountains.

Based on a trip to Lake Louise, Banff, Alberta, I wanted to create something like a picture-esque visage which will allow the viewer to imagine themselves in the painting. With the mountains some distance away, I hope that the viewer will be able to see how great these mountains are compared to the figure in the foreground.
