As we hiked around the perimeter of Thetis Lake, my son enthusiastically took photographed our journey. He asked if I would make a painting based on one of them, and this was the one we decided on. We both liked the composition, and the colour of the late day sun on the arbutus trees. Reference photo credit: Farley Lathrop.
