Inspired by several sketching sessions, this painting portrays an ideal image of Yellowstone beauty, not one limited to a specific site. "Among the wonders of Yellowstone National Park are several lakes and streams which are covered with luxurious mountain lilies. One such lake is Isa Lake on Craig Pass. Another is along DeLacy Creek between West Thumb and Old Faithful. I have, with much joy, painted at both locations several times," wrote the artist.
