Gloss:
From 1931 to 1938, Johnson spent his summers at the Rimrock Ranch, approximately thirty miles east of Yellowstone National Park. From the ranch, Johnson would hike up the canyons along the rivers, pack into the mountains, and camp in Yellowstone to explore, sketch, and paint. Cove in Yellowstone Park, from one of his painting excursions, is probably unfinished. Using broad, loose brush strokes, Johnson worked quickly to render a glimpse of the park's beauty.
